In aid of Garden House Hospice Care, based in Letchworth, the independent jewellers also sold mulled wine and festive treats to get people into the spirit, and held a raffle.

Kate Beard said: "We were thrilled to have had such a wonderful turn out on the way with lots of happy faces to celebrate Christmas and raise money for Garden House Hospice Care with us. Upstairs in our beading workshops, children let their imagination run wild creating beautiful beaded wreaths and candy canes to take home.

"The time of giving was not amiss and we look forward to donating the money raised to the hospice in the coming week."
