Thank you for your generous donations towards a Christmas lunch for local families.

We would love for 10-20 members of the St Helen’s family to deliver one or two hampers around Wheathampstead on Sat 23rd Dec – many hands make light work!  Please let Helen (07974 762997) know if you would like to volunteer.
