Michael Duffy from headline sponsors The Centurion Club said: “It was a great event that we were proud to be part of. Congratulations all round”

Lisa Bates-Wallis, executive director of St Albans Chamber of Commerce said “We had a fantastic afternoon at Sopwell House with fantastic food and service again this year. I am delighted that we were able to raise so much money for Mount Vernon Charitable Trust and also The OLLIE Foundation. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and the generous people donating auction items, bidding for them or giving up their time to make the event such a huge success.”
