A Kenton hospice took the opportunity to thank 900 "fantastic" volunteers as they came together to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
The Mayor of Harrow, Margaret Davine, was on hand alongside more than 250 people to commemorate St Luke's Hospice, which provides free end of life care in Harrow and Brent, at the Harrow Masonic Lodge.
St Dominic’s Sixth Form College finished its annual sponsored walk aid of St Luke’s as the hospice staff ran stalls, activities and a barbecue.
Children were entertained with rides, a bouncy castle, craft area and face painting.
St Luke’s director of fundraising, Pam Russell, said: "Our family fun day was a chance to say thank you to all of our fantastic volunteers.
"It was great to meet all their family and friends.
"The local community had a great time and we just want to thank everyone for their continuing support in our 30th year."
