A St Albans based addiction charity is celebrating after £2,300 was raised at a fundraising evening at the Abbey Theatre

Ticket sales for a performance of William Shakespeare comedy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, went towards The Living Room based in Hatfield Road.

Janis Feely MBE, CEO and founder of the charity said: "It was absolutely brilliant and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The show was fantastic and I would love to know how they learned all those lines.

"The acting was brilliant- we could have been in a London theatre."

The ticket sales were also shared between the city's Rotary Club, who kindly donated their share of the proceeds to The Living Room

During the evening, Ms Feely made special mention to a performance by Crab, the dog in The Two Gentlemen of Verone, Stuart Lewis, Deputy Lieutenant for the County of Hertford, and newly appointed Patron of the charity.

Along with a raffle the evening raised over £2,300 for the charity, which offers a free service to people with any addiction or eating disorder.
