People from across the Chilterns attended a barbecue and music night at the Mediterranean Nursery in Bovingdon which raised £3,000 for two charities: the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted and Myeloma UK.

Tracey Read of Myeloma UK says: “Every year Stuart and Debbie Oastler from the Mediterranean Nursery hold a fundraising event for the Hospice of St Francis in memory of Debbie’s late mother, Eve Freeman. This year they kindly asked if we would like to do a joint venture.

“We contacted shops and organisations in and around Chesham, Amersham, Hemel Hempstead and Bovingdon and were amazed at just how kind and resourceful the local community is. We got some great raffle prizes from balloon rides, theatre tickets, dog grooming, beauty vouchers to chocolates and bottles of wine. This, without a shadow of a doubt, helped enormously with the fundraising.”
