A South Kilburn community centre operating as a vaccine centre celebrated its 1000th jab with a special cake.
The Granville Youth and Community Centre, in Granville Road, has teamed up with local NHS providers and volunteers to offer Covid vaccinations to residents on Thursday afternoons.
South Kilburn resident Natalie Keen became the 1,000th person to receive a Covid jab on May 20.
The team celebrated with a cake specially designed by local cake decorator Sam Brown of the London Cake Academy.
The South Kilburn Trust (SKT), which manages the centre, started operating as a vaccine hub in March as locals were finding it hard to access centres in other parts of Brent.
