East Canonbury Residents’ Association put on five hours of fun on Sunday, including a dog show judged by former EastEnders star Nicola Duffett.

There were vintage police cars on display, plus the opportunity to win a signed Arsenal football and other donated prizes.

The charity event raised money for Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, the Macmillan Fund and the Rosebowl Centre for local young people.

Plenty of delicious food was up for grabs, with meals donated by five local restaurants, including the Côte Restaurant, Islington Green and Sweet Thursday, Southgate Road.
