A Hertfordshire disability charity has picked up a cheque for a chunk of the money raised at this year’s Harpenden Carnival.
Herts Action on Disability (HAD) is one of several charities who have split the £24,003 raised from the carnival, which was held on Saturday, June 9.
The Oracle Cancer Trust and mental health charity Mind are two of the other beneficiaries and smaller donations are being made to community groups.
On Wednesday, Paul Bishop from HAD and Steve Probyn from the Hertfordshire branch of Mind visited carnival organisers Harpenden Round Table to receive their cheques and speak about the work they do for people in the county with disabilities and mental health problems.
Round Table’s Matthew Hall said: “It was great to hear the impact that the money raised by the carnival will have.”
