A housing assocation has raised more than £3,000 for North Herts Samaritans after a year of charity fundraising.

Settle, based in Letchworth, has spent the last 12 months supporting Samaritans - their charity partner for the year - by organising events including cake sales and quiz nights.

Volunteers from Settle were also on hand to offer extra support over two days in September - decorating rooms inside the Samaritans base in Hitchin, and creating a new garden area.

Samaritans said it was " a great job very well done by some fantastic people".
