A popular St Albans venue has encouraged its customers to club together for charity this summer.

Club Batchwood has announced it will be collecting spare change as part of a ‘Give A Kid A Quid’ appeal from 20th August to 2nd September, which invites clubbers to donate while they dance.

All donations will go the The Echo Trust, which has raised more than £2.5 million to date for local children’s charities.

Lara Higgins, a 21-year-old student from St Albans, said she admired the club’s decision to support the community.

“As someone who often spends their nights out at Batchwood, I think it’s a great idea and an easy way to raise some extra money for a charity.”

General Manager Peter Bell also praised the cause, and said he was confident his customers would dig deep.

“‘Give A Kid A Quid’ is a simple way to raise a lot of money that will transform the lives of young people in our community.
