SANDWICHES are Molly Caldicott's bread and butter - or at least they were when the London Welsh Male Voice Choir came to the city on Saturday.

Molly, who is in her eighties, volunteered to make the sandwiches for the visit by the choir to St Albans Abbey where they were putting on a concert to raise money for the local day hospice Grove House and Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet.

A volunteer at Grove House for several years, Molly was given the ingredients for the sandwiches for more than 80 people by Sainsbury's in Everard Close - at no charge.

The supermarket has chosen Grove House as its charity for the year and has been helping the hospice in a number of ways.

It provided all the bread for the sandwiches as well as the fillings of Molly's choice and bottles of water for the choir.

Liz Hizli, community fundraiser at Grove House, said: "Molly helps at all sorts of events, stuffs envelopes for us, makes cakes and made mince pies at Christmas."

The concert was a sell-out with extra chairs having to be put out for the large number of people who wanted to enjoy it.
