ST Albans Polo Club hosted a charity event to raise money for Help for Heroes on July 24. The chance to picnic, enjoy a dinner and raise a glass or two of champagne drew in the crowds as 500 people attended to watch four teams battle it out in two matches. The idea for Polo For Heroes was conceived by celebrity TV chef Tristan Welch and polo fanatic Clare Dingwall who met at a previous Help for Heroes fundraiser. The star-studded event took place at the club in Chiswell Green Lane, St Albans, and raised 25,000 for British troops fighting in Afghanistan.
