The event supported three local charities: Harpenden Trust, Hope and Homes for Children and Harpenden Spotlight on Africa.

The aim of the Harpenden Trust is to help Harpenden people in need, individually and collectively. Recently it has supported the national vaccination programme and has received a Purple Star Strategy Certificate from Hertfordshire NHS for outstanding dedication and commitment

Hope and Homes for Children aims to close orphanages by moving children into loving stable families and tackle the root causes of family breakdown.
