Catering students at West Herts College dished up a bumper portion of support for the Have a Heart for your Hospice Appeal this week.

Stepping back from the heat of the kitchen, they demonstrated their affinity to the town’s hospice by donning the brand new Have a Heart badges and put Peace Hospice Care on the menu for the day.

The Have a Heart Campaign launched on February 1 has been asking the community to donate £1 or more to the hospice.

Local companies, office schools and shops have joined in with the campaign by wearing the new "Have a Heart for your Hospice" badges and making donations.

On Friday, volunteers from the Have a Heart Appeal will be at Watford Junction Station and Morrisons supermarket on Watford Business Park.

Commuters and shoppers will be invited to support the campaign by making a donation.

Peace Hospice Care is challenging the community to send in a snap of the badge wearer to be displayed in a Have a Heart online gallery.

Peace Hospice Care Events Manager Peter Watson said: "The badges have prompted a wave of support. So many people are wearing them and showing they have a heart for their hospice.

"We have received some fantastic fun photos of the badges being worn. We want to see even more pictures. So please send them our way through our gallery."

The support of the community and the power of online and text donations is priceless to patients with a life limiting illness and their families who need the services of Peace Hospice Care he added.
