The new Harpenden Town Mayor’s first fundraising quiz night was a great success.

Park Hall was buzzing with the sounds of teams discussing and choosing answers and waiting in anticipation at Mary Manard’s fundraising quiz on Friday.

Raffle prizes donated by local businesses and individuals contributed £275 towards the funds raised. Quizmaster Ginny was as popular as ever with her teasing range of questions.

The town mayor said: "It was lovely to see people having such a fun evening as well as raising money for two very worthwhile local charities; Community Meeting Point Harpenden and Home-Start St Albans City and District. 

"Thank you to everyone for their support.  It was very much appreciated and has been a great start to my fundraising for the year.'

Mayor Maynard is now busy planning her next charity event, a Charity Golf Day in September.  There will be a raffle and small auction at the dinner in the evening.
