Banking staff will host a community Christmas event to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Staff at Barclays Edgware branch in Station Road will set out stalls selling festive treats such as mince pies as well as activities including face painting and a raffle.

The event will run from 9am to 4pm today and all money will go to the Philippines Disaster Fund. 

Howard Hesketh, Edgware branch manager, said: “For many people in that area, there will be no Christmas this year and we are only too happy to play our small part in raising funds that will go towards improving the lives of people affected by this disaster.”

Thank you Mr. Hesketh. Thank you to all at Barclays Edgware. Thank you for having such a wonderful heart, for your compassion and kindness towards our people. It's really heart-warming to know that people do care, that people go out of their way to help, even make sacrifices, for other people. Seems like a glimpse of God's kingdom on earth. God bless you everyone! Thank you!
