The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters members have been busy making different key workers & heroes who are supporting the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic. We wanted to find a way to celebrate the work they do and to thank them in some small way. Every day we have been posting a photo of a different key worker/hero on social media, together with a little story about them.
In addition to creating a little spark of joy during this difficult time, we are pleased to be raising funds for two Hertfordshire charities: Citizens Advice Bureau – East Herts and Carers in Hertfordshire: Both these charities are trying to continue their valuable community work by asking their volunteers to work from home. They require urgent funds to give their volunteers the necessary technology and support, to enable them to continue their work.
