A good cause which was overwhelmed by the support it received from the community after burglars ransacked its offices has received another welcome windfall.
Cancer Hair Care, based in Stevenage Old Town, helps people cope with hair loss caused by cancer treatment.
It has received nearly £6,500 from the Austin Charitable Fund at the Hertfordshire Community Foundation to support its work.
The fund, established in 2002, picks a different charity to support each year.
The donation represents the results of a string of fundraising activities and Claire Austin, managing director of the North Herts funeral directors which has its HQ not far from the Cancer Hair Care Offices, has also been helping the good cause connect with other businesses and benefit from professional advice.
