New Barnet mayor Anthony Finn has named Camp Simcha as one of the charities he will support during his year in office.
Councillor Finn has chosen to support the Hendon-based charity which aims at improving the quality of life for children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Noah's Ark Children's Hospice, a local charity providing practical support to life-limited children and their families, is to be the other mayoral charity.
The new mayor said: "I hope to serve the borough well, while raising important funds for two very worthy local charities."

The director of Jewish education for the new Jewish Community Secondary School in Barnet will be away on maternity leave shortly after it opens in September.
Elaine Robinson - who was UJIA's head of Jewish social responsibility before joining JCoSS - is expecting her first child in October, but hopes to be working for the first few weeks of term.
She is in the process of finalising the school's Jewish curriculum arrangements.
A JCoSS spokesman said the school was "well into the process of arranging maternity cover".

Barnet, home to Britain's biggest Jewish population, has reported a significant drop in racist and religious hate crime and an increase in catching the perpetrators.
There were 284 racist offences during the 2009/10 year, which ended in March, compared to 428 in the previous 12 months.
Up from 35 per cent to 50 per cent was the rate of clear-up - where police identify the culprits and a punishment is applied ranging from a caution to a prison sentence.

JFS head of English Kate Lightman, whose daughter was refused entry to the school in a row over conversion, has been appointed to a senior post at the new Jewish Community Secondary School, JCoSS.
Mrs Lightman will be assistant head with responsibility for English at JCoSS, which opens in Barnet in September. She has taught at JFS for more than 20 years.
In 2005, she and her husband David applied for a place for their daughter Maya but were turned down because the London Beth Din rejected Mrs Lightman's conversion in Israel.
