The Nottingham’s St Albans team has raised over £140 for a local homeless charity.

Colleagues at the building society made cakes and buns, selling them to members of the public in their latest efforts for Herts Young Homeless.

St Albans branch manager Vickie Hobbs added: “It’s a pleasure to be working with such a great charity and helping give young people a better start in life.

“This is our second event for Herts Young Homeless and we plan further fundraising activities throughout the year.”

Earlier this year the branch gave Herts Young Homeless, who focus on the needs of 16 to 24 year-olds in Hertfordshire, a cheque for £100 to assist them in their work.

The charity provides help, mediation and education so young people are less likely to experience homelessness.

Jeremy Atkinson, The Nottingham’s Hertfordshire cluster manager, said: “Homelessness charities tend to have a lot of focus in the colder months of the year.

“However bringing awareness and vital funds to enable the good work to continue all year round is essential.”
