PUBLISHED: 14:02 10 November 2019
The first cohort of a Hitchin strings foundation, set up in memory of Dorothy Wells, has held a concert to celebrate the hard work of students during the first year.
The Dorothy Wells Strings Foundation was set up after Dorothy left a legacy for an organ scholarship - The Dorothy Wells Organ Foundation, which launched at the town's St Mary's Church in 2016 - and a strings project, which launched in November last year.
