Urgently needed items to help people caught up in the conflict in Syria were donated at a collection point in Kilburn on Saturday.
A constant stream of people turned up at 254 Kilburn High Road for the ‘Big Aid Drop for Syria’ event organised by British medical and humanitarian relief charity Hand in Hand for Syria.
Iman Mujahed, event coordinator, said: “It was absolutely amazing.
“It was incredibly uplifting to see the public support to try and help the people in Syria.”
With the help of volunteers, a 40 feet container packed with medical equipment and donations left Kilburn on Saturday on the first leg of its journey to Syria.
