A Hatfield woman has handed over a cheque for hundreds of pounds after organising a fundraiser for the autism charity Potential Kids.
Loekie Wigmore, who volunteers for Hatfield Rotary Club, gave £900 to support the Hatfield-based charity.
Ms Wigmore raised the money for the cause - which has been chosen as the Welwyn Hatfield mayor's charity of the year - by hosting a garden party on June 16 at her home in Hatfield.
Her tea party included stalls selling plants and flowers, crafts, cakes and was also attended by visiting rotarians from twin town Zierikzee in the Netherlands.
Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield Roger Trigg said: "I would like to thank Loekie for organising the garden party, and everyone who attended and donated.
