A charity has thanked locals in the Harrow area for their support in 2015.
In a letter to getwestlondon, Marie Curie said that their support helped fund three nurses to work for 1,477 hours.
They also said the funds raised meant that 59 patients were able to be comforted by family and friends in their own home at the end of their lives.
The letter said: "The Charity, Marie Curie would like to thank the residents and businesses in the Pinner area for all their support during 2015.
"Whether you stood in the street, train station or shop to help us collect, delivered collecting tins and boxes, had a collection box in your premises, held an event, went on a trek or made a donation we are truly very grateful.
"We couldn’t do what we do without you."
Marie Curie Nurses work night and day, in people’s homes across London, providing hands-on support.
The charity says that every £20 raised provides an hour of vital nursing care and helps Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to people with a terminal illness and their families.
The letter continued: "In 2015 in the London Borough of Harrow, you funded three nurses for 1,477 hours supporting 59 patients and their families allowing them to remain in their own homes surrounded by their loved ones at the end of their lives.
"If you would like to help in 2016 then there are a number of ways that you can get involved either by joining a local fundraising group, collecting, going on a trek or challenge or arranging your own fundraising event."
