St Albans family charity celebrates 10th birthday
FACE painters and circus skills entertainers were on hand to help a local family support a charity celebrate its 10th anniversary recently.
Home-Start St Albans City and District marked its first decade with a children’s party at Butterfly World in Chiswell Green for families and volunteers in the afternoon followed by an evening reception for supporters and fundraisers.
Among the guests were outgoing Mayor of St Albans, Cllr Maxine Crawley, and Cllr Geoff Harrison, who is currently Deputy Mayor.
Home-Start is a registered charity that trains local volunteers to provide support and friendship to families with young children by visiting families in their own homes.
Over the last decade in the St Albans district, over 300 volunteers have supported more than 500 local families in their homes.
