Three charities in Hampstead Garden Suburb have shared a £1,000 donation from a building society.

The North London Hospice, Caring4Carers and the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust were given £500, £300 and £200 respectively from the area's Yorkshire Building Society branch, in The Market Place.

The cash giveaway was part of the branch’s commitment to help good causes where the building society’s colleagues and members live and work.

Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer was on hand to give the cheques to charity representatives last week.
