The fundraiser, held at Ely Beet Social Club, was organised by Valerie Moulding from Litttleport and Sue Piper from Ely after 18-year-old Chloe Moulding was hospitalised for 15 days over Christmas with a form of glandular fever called guillian barre syndrome.

Sue said: "I play bowls and it was fun organising it, we had lunches, draws, quizzes and everything to raise money on that day.

"It's quite a lot of money to have raised in one day and we think it's going to go towards apparatus for the intensive care unit - because that's where they saved Chloe's life.

"Friends and family gave generously and all the players - we had people come up from across the country; one even came up from Portsmouth.
