Bosses at one of Fenland’s biggest factories were put in the stocks and soaked with flying sponges in aid of charity.
Senior staff at DHL on New Bridge Lane in Wisbech were hit with wet sponges in a bid to raise as much cash as they could for road safety charity, Brake.
A total of £388 was raised for the charity - which aims to stop the tragedy of road deaths and injuries in the UK - at the event on Friday, August 16.
Andrew Wilson, one of the organisers, said: "I wish to give special thanks to those who agreed to get soaked.
"I'd also like to thank the engineering department for putting together an idea I had and all the help from everyone on the day thank you all."
