A Downton Abbey-themed charity ball will help raise money for a new counselling centre for children and teenagers.

Terapia, in Watford Way, Hendon, will hold the event at the Regent Banqueting Suite, in Finchley on Saturday, September 20.

The charity needs to raise more than £1m to transform the dilapidated Bothy, in Stephens House, Finchley, into a purpose built therapeutic centre.

As part of the event, people can slip into period costumes and dress up as Lord or Lady Grantham, or Mrs Patmore or Carson.

Tickets cost £65 per person or £600 for a table of ten. The evening will start with a champage reception followed by dinner with live entertainment and a raffle.
