Pictons Make A Big Splash at the Harpenden Carnival

Pictons will be making a big splash at this year’s Harpenden Carnival when they roll out their village stocks for kids to soak dad and their siblings, all in aid of charity for the Carnival organisers, the Harpenden Round Table.

Pictons, which has offices in Luton, Hemel Hempstead, Tring and Milton Keynes, is also joining in the fun and if anyone wants to aim a wet sponge at a solicitor then a willing ‘victim’ from the firm will make the sacrifice and happily receive a soaking to raise money for good causes.

Sukh Saini, Pictons Managing Partner says “Our village stocks are a bit of a show stopper at the Harpenden Carnival and always attract lots of visitors who relish the chance to sling a sponge at their troublesome brothers or get one over on their dads. We raise a fair sum in the process of this ‘good clean fun’.

“The Harpenden Carnival is a brilliant event for the family and as a Harpenden resident I am delighted to be taking part in the day. My kids have been coming since they were tiny and they always have a great time. We aren’t leaving out the mums, they can win £50 worth of M&S vouchers just by entering our free prize draw and for the little ones we’ll be giving away our popular helium balloons.’

Paul Pepperrell, a member of the Round Table says ”We are delighted to have companies such as Pictons at the Harpenden Carnival who help us to raise the much needed funds for our charities through their sponsorship and crowd pleasers, like Pictons’ stocks. This year our beneficiaries will be Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Peace Hospice in Watford, Breast Cancer Care, Community/Meeting point and Noah Enterprise in Luton.

“These are all great causes, Last year we raised over £8,000 last year for charities and local organisations including the scouts, the Red Cross and the fire brigade who help us with the organisation. This is thanks to our sponsors and the 5,000 Carnival visitors we get every year. I am confident that we’ll have a great summer weekend with some glorious sunshine.”
