Organisers of the Southdown Festival in Harpenden handed over £4,000 to charity thanks to donations from local pubs.
The festival, which was held in September, raised £3,913, but was rounded up to £4,000 by Plough & Harrow landlady Sarah 'Sid' Rider and The Carpenters Arms landlord Tony Hedigan.

The money was split evenly between The Harpenden Trust and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Sid presented the cheque for The Harpenden Trust to volunteers Di McCurley and Diana Brindlecombe and care fund chair Nick Luckett.
Nick said: "A big thank you for this. It means we can continue to support less advantaged families in Harpenden."
Southdown Festival committee member Irvine Hunter went into London with Tony Hedigan to present the other cheque to Charles Alexander, chairman of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, outside the Royal Marsden Hospital.
