A village car show has been hailed a success after raising £15,000 for good causes.
More than 3,000 people attended the Parson Drove Custom and Classic, Car, Bike and Trike Show, which was held on July 14/15.
Hundreds of cars lined the Parson Drove Playing Field at the event which also included stalls, rides and live music.
Funds raised from the show have been split between the village hall, Wisbech Lions, MAGPAS and the East Anglian air Ambulance.
The event has raised more then £70,000 for the charities in the 12 years it has been running.
