A FORMER mayor has given £3,000 to The Hospice of St Francis.
Julie Laws, who handed over the Berkhamsted Town Council title to Carol Green in May, made the cash at a charity fundraiser.
The event at Deans Hall in Berkhamsted School, which marked the end of her term as mayor, was cheaper than staging a formal dinner in Berkhamsted Town Hall.
This helped her raise more cash for the hospice, which is off Shootersway in Northchurch.
Mrs Laws said: “It is a pleasure to be donating to this wonderful organisation. My thanks go to all connected with the hospice for their work and dedication.”
