Rebecca, 14, puts her art and soul into volunteering and raising money for Isabel Hospice




A 14-year-old Bishop’s Stortford College student used her artistic talent to raise £730 for Isabel Hospice.

Rebecca Towns adopted the East Herts hospice service charity as part of her Duke of Edinburgh's bronze award, which she has successfully completed.

She used her calligraphy skills to design, produce and sell personalised greetings and Christmas cards, topping her initial targets both for money raised and hours spent volunteering.

Renee Friend, a volunteer for the hospice for over 30 years and chair of its Bishop's Stortford fundraising support group, said: "Rebecca was a joy to volunteer alongside and we – Isabel Hospice patients, families, staff and volunteers – are extremely grateful to this delightful young lady for her wonderful community support.

"Rebecca was also able – between lockdowns – to volunteer in our charity shop, to sell her personalised cards at local events, as well as volunteering at the mayor’s garden party."
