A FLEDGLING charity has received a timely boost just after celebrating its first birthday.
Rehabilitation group Resolve, which meets regularly at the Woodhall Community Centre, in Mill Green Road, WGC, helps people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Having only formed last April, the group is still very much in its infancy, and relies solely on donations and small grants to keep the service alive.
It is why Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps took part in the spring's Rotary Sponsored Walk around WGC in aid of Resolve.

With all the money collected, Mr Shapps presented Resolve practice manager Jean King and volunteer co-ordinator Debbie Maskell with a cheque for �1,000 at the Coronation Fountain on Parkway, WGC.
"They're a very small charity and I think at the moment they're punching a little above their weight, because substance abuse is so much at the heart of what goes right and wrong in society," said Mr Shapps.
