An afternoon of music and dancing helped raise around £600 for a Wisbech care home.
Glenfields held its annual summer fayre which featured the singing talents of local musician Bondy.
Also there were craft stalls, tombola, raffle, games and refreshments.
Katie Doiley, activity coordinator, said: “Residents had a lovely time a lot of them got up and enjoyed dancing to the music. The amount raised was brilliant.”
A football match will take place in Gorefield on Thursday (16) to raise money for Glenfields in memory of the late Chris Turner who was a former resident.
