Charity News May Hertford and Ware
In charity news, the recent Isabel Hospice Muddy Mayhem fundraising event is expected to raise £12,000, which will support its work. CHIPS, which runs
playschemes for children with additional needs and their brothers and sisters, tells us that it has gratefully received a cheque for £18,378 from the Hertfordshire Golf Club which will help them with the service they provide. Both charities would be pleased to hear from anyone interested in volunteering or supporting them.
Plus on a volunteering note Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre is increasing its focus on supporting volunteering in the town, inviting local charities to run awareness sessions in its premises, and promoting a wide range of volunteer opportunities. The Tourist Information Point in Ware
(located in the Museum) also has information on local charities and volunteering. Why not pop in?
