Parishioners have chosen the charities they will raise money for during the next year.

St Peter’s Church in High Street, Berkhamsted, raises cash for two good causes every year through a variety of events – the main one is its Petertide Fair in June.

Next year, the group will raise cash for Home-Start Dacorum, which supports families in the borough, and Maji Mazuri, which helps deprived communities in poverty-stricken Kenya.

Petertide chairman Pru Murray said: “I’m hoping that the people of Berkhamsted will continue to support our Petertide events and give generously in 2013 to help improve the lives of people in our own community and overseas.”
