Fundraisers dressed as doctors and nurses asked pub punters enjoying a tipple to spare some cash for a good cause on Friday night.

The family and friends team, raising cash for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, visited eight venues in Hemel Hempstead.

It was organised by Sandy White after medical experts at two hospitals under the trust – London’s Charing Cross and St Mary’s – saved the life of her brother-in-law, David Ivory, 65, when a fall down stairs caused a blood clot in his brain.

Also taking part was David’s wife Debra, of Gadebridge Road.

Sandy said: “It was a fantastic night. Everyone was so happy to give to the hospitals and the pubs were brilliant.”

They have raised £431.81.

Debra also wanted to thank the Northchurch Baptist Church for their help during the difficult family time.
