MORE than 200 people turned out to support the Wisbech branch of the Children's Society at their wine and cheese tasting evening.
The event, held in the gardens of Elgood's Brewery, was organised by branch president Alan Salmon and his wife, and branch chairman, Shirley.
It raised £3,000, which will be used by the charity to fund its work with children, and gets added to the more than £120,000 the Wisbech branch has raised over the past 15 years. Visitors, including Peter Neil, the Children's Society's community fundraising manager, battled the evening's unsettled weather to sample wine and cheese.
Mrs Salmon said: "We were absolutely overwhelmed by everyone's support."
