A trainee London tour guide is fundraising for the St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge (SAHWR) which provides specialist domestic abuse services.

The free event  ‘Six in the City of St Albans’ will tell the history of St Albans through the stories of six powerful women over time in exchange for a donation to the charity. 

St Albans resident Martin Brown wanted to do something to help his local community while studying for his London “Blue Badge” tour guide qualification. 

The retired headteacher said: “St Albans has a great story to tell from the Romans to today and there are some truly inspiring women connected to our great city.”

SAHWR has been supporting victims of domestic violence and abuse for 38 years, always evolving to meet their changing needs.
