As the Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB) celebrates its 70th birthday this year, the borough paid tribute to the hard work of Brent's volunteers who help solve the legal and money problems of people in the area.
Brent's 69 CAB staff, which includes 41 volunteers, dealt with almost 20,000 inquiries last year, extending its hours and recruiting more volunteers during the recession.
Bryan Stark, a volunteer advisor at Brent CAB for more than five years, said: "The night was a huge success with volunteers from all over the country gathered in the palace, sharing stories and experiences. It made me feel very proud to be working for Brent CAB."
The Brent team alone includes five law students, who help provide specialist advice within these areas, as well as immigration issues.
