More than £3,000 has been raised for a Cambridgeshire-based MS charity at the Littleport 10k and children’s fun run race.
A team of nine runners all aiming to raise cash for the Cambridge & District MS Society Group raised a total of £3,047.58 earlier this year.
Bob Bragger, group co-ordinator and chair of the Cambridge & District MS Society Group was "overwhelmed" by the amount they had collected for the charity.
"I just can't thank them enough. They are truly amazing people," he said following the announcement made over the weekend.
"Well done to Ann Schofield, Cathy Gibb-de Swarte, Jamie Gayer, Stuart Rollings, Ashleigh Blackman-Doyle, Laura Baker, Clare Andrews, Amanda and young son Stanley Beavis who made it all possible.

Some of the team members, including Ann Schofield, a MS sufferer herself who had never run a 10k before, have agreed to run again next year.
