TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Love Herts - a simple way to give where you live

Love Herts enhances our ability to help vulnerable people in Hertfordshire by making it easy to effectively give to your community.

Donations to the appeal are used to help and support a wide range of deserving causes and community initiatives across Hertfordshire which may otherwise go unsupported.

By using our extensive knowledge of the county and its voluntary sector, including our Hertfordshire Matters research report, we are able to identify and target the areas and issues most in need of support.

We would love to talk to you about how you can help and become involved. Contact us to find out more.

“I didn’t realise quite how many voluntary groups get together every week, all throughout Hertfordshire, with the pure intent of helping others. I find the selfless giving of time and energy by so many in our county for the benefit of others to be truly inspiring. If my involvement in HCF can help some of these amazing initiatives to keep on doing what they are doing, or even better expand their work, then I will be very happy.”
Simon Tilley – Fund Holder and Trustee
