A sum of money found during a charity collection around St Albans will now be gifted to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Just before Christmas, Clothes Aid sent out an appeal in the hope of reuniting a large sum of money with its rightful owner.

While carrying out its regular door to door clothes collections in the AL3 and AL4 area in November, a Clothes Aid Macmillan Cancer Support bag was collected containing, not only the usual clothes donations, but also a womens' handbag containing £769.23.

Hatfield Police Station have been in possession of the unclaimed fortune for four weeks, so now the money will be gifted to Macmillan Cancer Support.

St Albans & Harpenden Review:

Clothes Aid have been the official clothes collection partner to Macmillan Cancer Support since 2012 and have raised over £450,000 nationwide to help provide nurses, financial grants, information and support to those who need it.
