Thousands of pounds was raised at a pamper day in aid of Save the Children’s Syria Appeal.

More than 80 women enjoyed massages, manicures and facials, raising £4,200 at St Mary's Church, Wimbledon on Saturday.

The fundraiser was organised by women from the Ahmadiyya Muslim community to focus on what they call the beauty that resides within the young survivors of the Syrian conflict.

Attendee Chrystine Chalk, from Wimbledon Save the Children said: "'I felt very inspired by the energy, peace and harmony at the event.

"Everyone was interested and united in their desire to help the children and families affected by the crisis in Syria."
