Lisa, who is a youth and family worker, said: “It’s truly amazing what a community can achieve when we come together. I would like to thank everyone who supported us.

“Most of the prizes were donated by local businesses, friends and family members.

“We held a raffle, tombola and provided light snacks and refreshments at a small cost.

“There was great support which enabled us to raise £900, then to round the sum off my son Clint Pearson - who lives and works in London - saw my Facebook post and donated £100 to make the total raised from the bingo £1,000.”

The Fenland charity supports families and children with additional needs and life-limiting conditions.
