The organisers of St Albans Living Advent have exceeded their £1,000 fundraising goal thanks to a Christmas carolling tour of their four roads.
Claire Toms and Abby Orchard served up mince pies and mulled wine to friends and neighbours on Ladysmith Road, Kimberley Road, Folly Avenue and Cannon Street on Wednesday night in a bid to boost their collection for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Donations had been coming in throughout the month, but the special event helped the group top their £1,000 target.

Claire said: “Wednesday night was so successful. We are counting up but it’s over £270 raised in an hour! We will bust our aim of £1,000 and have doubled last year’s total.”
