Home-Start's Suzy Moody and her team attended the Baldock Network Group and joined in recording a new single - Blue Christmas - with patron Ken Follett volunteering to play bass and sing on the track.

Royston town councillor Ian Coll also took part, alongside the charity's new accountant John Froggett, who is also known as singer Joe Rose.

Folkstock Records are sponsoring the project, along with The Accountancy Practice and all the musicians and singers have given their time for free.

All proceeds from the release of the single which was recorded at Cream Room Studios in Dane End, will be given to Home-Start Herts.

The track had its first live performance at Stevenage Community Trust's annual dinner dance yesterday, held at The Priory in Little Wymondley.
