Big-hearted boys in St Albans have donated a variety of food for a local homeless charity.
Pupils attending the St Columba’s College prep school, King Harry Lane, recently collected goods for the Open Door Charity, Bricket Road, during their Harvest Festival celebrations.
Open Door offers a night shelter and daytime drop-in for vulnerable people, providing accommodation for up to 12 people each night and a hot meal.
It also offers support and advice on housing and health issues.
Recently released figures from StepChange Debt Charity show there has been a dramatic rise in debt worries among St Albans residents.
