More than £500 was raised for two local groups at a monthly car boot sale at the Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech.

The Wisbech Lions Club was given a £334.19 boost and FACET (Fenland Area Community Enterprise Trust) received £181.67 thanks to the two car boot sales, which were held on both May Bank Holiday weekends.

Kevin Smith, centre manager at the Horsefair, said: “I’d like to thank all the car booters and shoppers that attended our two events in support of these great charities.

“We raised over £500 – what an excellent result.”

“Wisbech Lions Club fundraises to help the schools, the elderly and much more within the local community and further afield.

“And FACET helps adults with learning and other disabilities to achieve their full potential in life, providing opportunities for them to train and gain qualifications to achieve employment or work towards living independently.

FACET will be at the Horsefair’s summer fun day in August to entertain shoppers with a musical performance.
