A handful of Fenland pub-goers have raised more than £2,800 for a local air ambulance charity following a year of fundraising.
Customers at The Bridge Inn at Wisbech St Mary enjoyed a well-earned party after handing over £2,850 to the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The group have already started preparing pots and decorations to sell at a home and garden auction in May to raise more charity cash.
