A group of doctors have shown their support for several foodbanks across the county by donating £500.

Medical professionals who are members of the educational forum, Afro GP Herts pulled together to donate to non-profit services in Hertfordshire last month.

Four GPs visited foodbanks and the Watford homeless charity, New Hope to present each service with a £500 donation.

Dr Muyiwa Ojo-Aromokudu and Dr Bolanle Akin Agunbiade visited the Borehamwood Foodshed which operates from the St Theresa Catholic Church, the Foodshed in Stevenage and the Luton Food Bank.

In Watford, Dr. Pearl Onyekuru and Dr. Nonye Agomo visited homeless charity, New Hope, which provides accommodation for rough sleepers.

Afro GP Herts facilitator Dr Charles Esene said: "We as a group will continue to support our community in the frontline as part of our jobs.

"We believe in building a community where all is cared for and no one is forgotten."

Afro GP Herts also donated essential items including 30 loaves of bread, 120 eggs, 25 bags of pasta per home, fruit and two boxes of plantain chips to care homes in April.

Doctors delivered the items to The Mead in Borehamwood, Allington Court in Bricket Wood and Arden House in Abbots Langley.
