Bingo players in Finchley have helped raise more than £2,000 for a children’s charity.

The Circle of Eight committee hosted a bingo evening in aid of Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice at St Paul’s Church in Long Lane, Finchley, on Wednesday.

More than 100 people turned up to support Noah's Ark which helps life-limited or life-threatened young people and their families.

The guest speaker at the event was Louise Oates, the charity’s family ambassador, whose daughter Katie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in June 2009.
