Accountants in St Albans have donated toiletries and toys to a local women’s shelter.

Mercer and Hole are collecting items for St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge, to help the people who seek sanctuary there.

The charity provide a safe and comfortable environment for women and children suffering domestic abuse, as well as offering support and advice.

Diane Coban and Liz Buckler are Mercer and Hole’s charity champions in the St Albans branch.

Liz said: “St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge is a great cause. We thought some of our team may have bought an excess of toiletries for their summer holidays, which they could donate and this does seem to have been the case.

“We are really pleased to have collected so many toiletries and toys to hand over to the refuge and hope they will make the women and children’s lives there a little better.”

The company’s charity of the year is the Alzheimer’s Society.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
