In the spirit of Christmas and giving back to the community, North Hertfordshire College Supported Studies Enterprise student Josh Henderson has launched a charity campaign to support Helping Herts Homeless! Josh will be collecting donations to create Christmas hampers for Helping Herts Homeless to distribute to their service users.

We’re proud to involve the NHC community in Josh’s charity work, and we hope that you will join us in supporting his campaign and helping those less fortunate this Christmas.
