Hatfield students and residents got together on Saturday to raise thousands of pounds for a suicide prevention charity.

The St Albans-based OLLIE Foundation will use the money for suicide awareness, intervention and prevention training by empowering professionals and young adults in their own communities to lead suicide prevention activities.
