A Welwyn Garden City woman has pledged to eat sardines if she raises enough money during Refugee Week - taking place now.
Rowena Grace has been doing a ration challenge - by eating refugee food during the last four days - to raise money for poverty and disaster relief charity Concern Worldwide.
She is also part of a nationwide team, named Ravenclaw, who are currently 3rd place on the Concern leaderboard for the UK.

"I have a tin of sardines in the box, which I hate.
"But in the spirit of the cause, I'm willing to take one for the team if I raise more than £600.
"I will swallow it but can't promise it won't swim back up."
