CHILDREN love dolls' houses so it is particularly apt that a former Mayor of Harpenden has decided to auction one made by his mother to a children's cancer hospice.
Chris Canfield has donated the dolls' house and its furniture to Keech Hospice Care's charity shop in Harpenden High Street where a secret auction closes tomorrow (Friday).
It has been given to the hospice at the request of his mother, the late Sylvia Canfield, who wanted the house and furnishings to be sold for the benefit of the hospice movement.
She died at St Luke's Hospice in Plymouth but lived and worked in Leverstock Green for most of her life.
