A CHARITY which cares for the homeless has managed to secure its long term future by buying the premises in which it operates.

Trustees, staff and friends of the North Herts Sanctuary, a charity providing all year round accommodation and other support services for the homeless of North Hertfordshire, celebrated the charity's purchase of 25 Nightingale Road, Hitchin.

Buying the property means the sanctuary will be able to provide ongoing provision for homeless people in the town.

The celebrations were attended by the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire William Tudor John who presented the deeds of the property to the trustees of the charity.

The chairman of North Herts District Council, Cllr Claire Strong, cut the first slice of a cake specially made for the occasion.
