Looking for something different to do on Bank Holiday Monday? Why not watch camel racing in Hertfordshire?

An afternoon of camel racing has been organised for tomorrow (Monday, May 26) in Northaw.

Enfield Chace Hunt is organising its third camel race event in aid of Herts Air Ambulance.

Spectators can enjoy an array of activities from noon, including a big wheel, helter skelter, swing boats, quad bike hire, archery, pony rides and much more.

Cristina Barone, Herts Air Ambulance fundraising coordinator, said: “The Camel Race is such a fun and unique way of fundraising, giving people the chance to take part in this bizarre experience and get sponsored to raise vital funds for Herts Air Ambulance at the same time.

“It’s not every day that you see camels in the Hertfordshire countryside!

“We are extremely happy that Enfield Chace Hunt put on this event year after year, raising vital funds for the charity.”

She added: “With no direct funding from the Government or National Lottery, we rely solely upon public donations and events like the Camel Race to continue flying and saving lives.”

The event takes place at Northaw Point to Point Course, off the B156 near Potters Bar.
