MP James Clappison dropped in on a charity that brightens the lives of struggling families.

The Hertsmere politician visited volunteers from the Home Start branch which covers Radlett, Borehamwood and Potters Bar, on Friday.

The branch, in Shakespeare Drive, Borehamwood, is part of a national charity which gives support to families with children under five.

Mr Clappison listened to how the volunteers offer friendship and informal support to parents with young children, to help them overcome death, illness and isolation.

Charity workers also help families facing multiple births, to help the parents give their children a better start in life.

Mr Clappison said: "I would like to pay tribute to all the marvellous work done by Home Start and I give my personal thanks to all their volunteers."

If you would like help from Home Start, or are interested in becoming a Volunteer or Trustee, call 020 8953 5082.
