A Hitchin–based counselling charity is appealing for “urgent” public support to enable it to keep operating during the coronavirus crisis.

Tilehouse Counselling, which works with more than 100 people from North Herts aged 13 and up each week, has postponed all fundraising events and say they are “very concerned” about reduced future funding.
