The Met Police choir teamed up with a charity that supports children with autism for a special performance in Holloway, raising £665 in the process.
Staff from the police force sang alongside the Kith and Kids choir at St Luke's Church in Hillmarton Road, Holloway on Wednesday last week.
They performed pop, classical and show tunes to mark 50 years of the charity, which works in Islington helping families overcome social isolation.
Choir member Pc Richard Fox said: "This may have been our third concert together, but it was made even more of a special occasion by being able to celebrate this amazing milestone.
"The police choir always looks forward to catching up with and performing with the Kith & Kids Choir.
