Giant chocolate Easter eggs have been raffled off in Harpenden raising £2,800 for charity.

Harpenden Lions organised the fundraiser, which has been running for more than 30 years, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The 33 eggs were raffled off at pubs in the town, as well as Wheathampstead, Redbourn, Flamstead and Markyate.

Kerry Briars, fundraising manager at the charity, said: "I would like to say a huge thank you to the Harpenden Lions for raising such a wonderful amount of money. This really will help so many people.

"Macmillan assist people in so many ways and some of the money will be used to fund the Hertfordshire wide benefits service, a team that helps people in the county claim funds that they are entitled to due to having cancer.

"Such a service, to provide money at a time of need, can only be funded by the support of people like the Harpenden Lions, so thank you once again."
