Last weekend, volunteers and drivers gave up their time for free to travel around North Herts, Stevenage and nearby villages to collect more than 550 Christmas trees in return for donations.

Richard Harbon, events manager at Garden House, said: "It takes around £7,500 a day to run the hospice's services, so the money raised will go towards that and more.

"We'd like to thank everyone for their contributions as we couldn't continue to care without you."

Special praise was reserved for the hospice's sponsors, supporters and volunteers who all gave up their time during the three-day campaign.
