“The people of St Albans have been very generous with all kinds of help in the 25 years since Open Door began offering meals and a bed to people who would otherwise have been sleeping rough.

“Anyone who would like to donate or get involved can visit our website at

Lush store supervisor Hollie Sterrett said: “As a company we want to help people who are working tirelessly to make the world a better place – we want play a useful part in the movement to create change.”
