Deb Thompson started Hatfield Harrier Helpers back when the coronavirus pandemic began in conjunction with the pub – which gave the group it’s name – to support people struggling through the lockdown.

The group has also helped a young man from Peru pack away his stuff safely, helped an elderly disabled man with his garden, supported lonely elderly people that just want a chat, celebrated a 91-year-old woman’s birthday with a cake and flowers, and cooked meals for some of the most vulnerable in Hatfield.

Deb said: “We are continuing to offer help and support to anyone that wants it

“Thank you for all the food donations [and] money donations and help within the WhatsApp group.

“We have a great team always ready to help out.

“All of this has been achieved with the great help and support of the Hatfield community and that’s why I love Hatfield.”

You can donate to the group through an appeal here gofundme.com/f/hatfield-athletic-harrier-helpers.
