A SINGLE mum who lost all of her belongings when her flat was destroyed in an alleged arson, is appealing to kind-hearted people for their help.

Connie Breen has been living in temporary accommodation with her four-year-old daughter Desiree since there was a fire at their council flat in Pheasant Close, Berkhamsted on Sunday, February 19.

Dacorum Borough Council has found them a new home but they need furniture and furnishings for it.

Connie said: “I just want our new flat to feel as much like home as possible.”

If anyone has furniture they would like to donate get in touch with The Gazette on 01442 898453 or email
