TWO Harpenden businesses, which had sponsored horses at a charity race night organised by the Mayor of Harpenden, galloped to success on Saturday night and won prizes.

The race night held at Harpenden House Hotel raised well over �1,000 for the nominated charities of Town Mayor, Cllr Rosemary Farmer, which are Grove House and Community Meeting Point. An additional sum was donated by bookmakers Ladbrokes.

Among the prizes donated by the Tote, Saracens and local companies was a signed rugby ball which was the subject of many bids at auction at the end of the evening.

The Mayor said: "It was a wonderful evening with a great atmosphere and I can't thank people enough for the generous donations and support for the event.
