You've seen them around Notting Hill and on the shoulders of visitors and residents. The Notting Hill Bag, a local charity initiative which is fronted by French fashion blogger Valentine Vanesse (pictured) and available to buy in local shops, has managed to raise £1000 for good causes and charity since its launch.
Author Hermoine Cameron and the Salvation Army - who both gladly leant their services for Operation Cup of Tea last week - each received £500. Cameron will be doing a sponsored walk from Notting Hill to Paris while the Salvation Army will use the funds to buy toys for children.
You can help keep the momentum going by purchasing a Notting Hill Bag for as little as £4. It comes in three designs and can be found on stalls and in shops across Notting Hill.
