Celebrations for National Flower Arranging day in Harpenden raised £320.43 for Herts Air Ambulance.

Harpenden Evening Floral Group took turns making flower bouquets to be sold in a raffle.

Raffle tickets for the event, which has run in aid of different charities for the last five years, were sold outside Sainbury’s in Harpenden High Street.

Maureen Randell, chairman of the Harpenden Evening Floral Group, said: “We love attending Sainsbury’s every year to raise money for charity and this year was no exception.

“We found customers were only too willing to support the Herts Air Ambulance and the amazing work that they do.

“The day was a great success and we were exceptionally pleased with the amount raised by the raffle.”

The Harpenden Evening Floral Group have their 50th anniversary this year.

They meet at All Saints Church Hall on Station Road in Harpenden, on the fourth Thursday of every month, at 7.30pm.
