Money raised at this year’s Kings Langley Carnival, which took place on June 24, has been donated to local groups and organisations.
A total of 25 recipients received their donations at an event hosted by the carnival committee on October 6.
More than 50 people attended the ceremony, which celebrated the remarkable range of local groups that work throughout the year to provide services and activities to villagers of all ages.
This year’s recipients included the Kings Langley Residents’ Association, who have been fighting to protect the village’s green spaces for more than 25 years; Kings Langley Charities, who provide food vouchers for families during the summer and at Christmas; and Kings Langley Football Club, to help them provide football kit for approximately 400 local boys and girls aged between seven and 18.
Other groups, including Good Neighbours, Kings Langley Musical Theatre Company, Kings Langley Fun Run, and many more also received a donation.
Carol Chandler, chair of the carnival committee, said: “I can’t emphasise enough how important our sponsors are to the success of the carnival. Their support means as much of the money as possible can be donated to village groups to raise awareness and support the work those groups do all year round.”
Next year’s carnival will take place on June 22. Anyone wishing to volunteer or sponsor the event should visit www.kingslangleycarnival.com for more information.
