A charity bingo evening held at Wisbech St Mary’s Community Centre raised £1,000 for Little Miracles earlier this month.
Lisa Pearson organised the fundraiser with the help of her niece, Annie Woods, and her sister, Maxine Cottrill.
The money raised will go towards the sensory garden project at the Queen Mary’s Centre in Wisbech. The project aims to provide a safe and stimulating environment for families.
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.
