St Saviours Concert Update

Dear all,

A huge thank you to all those who came along to our fundraiser on Friday night at St Saviours. Thanks to your generosity we raised a marvellous sum, and with more still coming in! We are simply amazed by the wonderfully kind and warm spirited people who made the evening a huge success.

Warm thanks also to St Saviours who donated the venue, and to the Hertfordshire Chamber Ensemble for once again this year putting on such a fabulous show and to our own volunteers who put on a fantastic range of refreshments too.

Keep watching this space for more exciting news coming soon in the New Year, thank you for your support, and we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a warm, safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
