Homeless people and vulnerable women in Aylesbury have been treated, thanks to a woman from the town.

Rachel Norris felt she needed to do something to give those helped by Aylesbury Women's Aid and Aylesbury Homeless Action Group a boost.

So, she got family, friends and colleagues at Hawk Incentives and Blackhawk Network involved.

Fifty gift bags have been put together and handed to the charities.
