Watch out for hospice fundraisers

There are two fundraising events in aid of the wonderful Hospice of St Francis to go in the diary for the beginning of December.

The first is a festive feast at Jalsa Indian restaurant in Berkhamsted on Thursday, December 1 from 7pm onwards.

The talented Jalsa chefs are putting together a delicious three course meal to showcase the very best of their menu.

There will also be a raffle with some fantastic prizes – including vouchers for meals at Jalsa and a painting kindly donated by local artist Mitzi Green.

A meal costs £19.95 and Jalsa will donate £7 of that to the hospice, which relies on donations to meet the bulk of iuts running costs.

Call 01442 875557 or 07411 302417 to book your table.

And on Saturday, December 3 from 12.30pm to 3.30pm Bovingdon Village will be holding their Christmas fair with proceeds going once again to the hospice.

There will be a great range of stalls – including candles and complementary products, Christmas decorations, South American silver jewellery, paintings and embroidery to name just a few.

And the children will get to meet Father Christmas.
