A team of young people held a charity car wash, a bake sale and a swimathon to raise money to renovate the hall where they meet.
The Prince’s Trust at Wisbech crew are into week four of their 12 week course and they decided they wanted to improve their base at the upstairs church hall of St Peter and Paul’s church.
The renovations include replacing the small kitchenette at a cost of around £1,000.
A sponsored swim took place at the Hudson pool in Wisbech with three of the team swimming 62 lengths between them.
Canon Matthew Bradbury gave permission to close off the car park and the team made posters and shared on social media to drum up business.
