Recruitment consultants from Barnet have raised £7,000 for a children's charity.

Staff at Personnel & Care Bank took part in sponsored walks, dress down days and a Zumbathon to raise the cash for The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (Nacoa), which supports children living with an alcohol-dependent parent.

The charity aims to educate children about alcohol abuse and help break the cycle of addiction within families.

Nacoa volunteer, Alison Jarvis said: "To raise this amount of money, when everyone is having to tighten their belts, is a credit to the commitment and hard work of the team.

“The money raised will help us to continue picking up the phone to children affected by a parent's drinking, so their support is vital.”
