MORE than £350 was raised through a coffee morning for a charity that supports soldiers and their families.

Harrow mayor, Councillor Mrinal Choudhury, tucked into the treats, including Krispy Crème doughnuts, at the Civic Offices, at Harrow Council on Friday to raise money for the Army Benevolent Fund (ABF).

The event was attended by council leader, Councillor Bill Stephenson, leader of the Conservative opposition group, Councillor Susan Hall, and Brent and Harrow Assembly Member, Navin Shah.

Councillor Kareema Marikar, chair of the Harrow ABF, said: “The Army Benevolent Fund offers lifetime support to serving soldiers, veterans and their families, who all make enormous sacrifices in the service of our country.

“The money raised today will help fund the outstanding work it does providing medical and financial support to those in need, in particular those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Thank you to the mayor and political leaders for their support, and to everyone who made donations today.”
