A Caucasian male described as in his fifties, salt and pepper hair, no noticeable distinguishing facial marks or facial hair, wearing glasses, smartly dressed in a suit - c5ft 10” - has been spotted in the Stotfold area.

He appears to have ID and a clipboard, and is canvassing on doors stating he is from the Welwyn Garden City based Isabel Hospice. He is requesting support to fund 150 Hospice at Home beds, due to a shortage of funds.
