Businesses and schools across North Herts donned their Christmas jumpers to support a children’s charity last Friday.

People from across the area, including renowned Knebworth author Ken Follett, took photos in their Christmas jumpers, posted them on social media and donated to Home-Start Herts, a charity dedicated to improving outcomes for children across Hertfordshire.

The charity’s communications officer Nina Puglia said “We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who got involved.

“They all looked very festive and helped us to raise valuable funds.”

Mr Follett – whose books have reached number one of the New York Times Best Seller List – has supported the charity for more than 20 years, initially as a patron for the Home-Start Stevenage.
