A trio of Crouch End artists are staging an exhibition in a local cafe to raise funds for the NHS.
Ray Barsby, Caroline Jones-Hanlon and Bounds Green artist and therapist Mo Singh have hung their abstract and figurative works in Coffee Circus with 80 percent of profits going to charity.
Barsby studied graphic design at Hornsey College and Central Saint Martins and teaches art in local schools, as does Jones-Hanlon, who studied at Goldsmiths.
They were all inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore and his fundraising for the NHS - assisted by the cafe which encourages local artists to showcase their work.
"We decided as a group to do this due to the outrageously mean offer of a 1 percent raise in wages for our NHS workers," added Jones-Hanlon.
