Seven local organisations and charities are the beneficiaries of the 2015 Isle of Ely Produce Potato Race.
This year the charity donations were awarded to Camsar, East Anglian Air Ambulance, Little Miracles, Fenhouse Brain Injury Rehab Unit, Light and Life School Assemblies, Fenprobe and Littleport Riots.
Oliver Boutwood, Isle of Ely director, said: “The selected charities are from across the age ranges of our community.
“Hopefully the money raised from our potato race will touch many people’s hearts and deliver the required results.”
The race also raised money for The Lantern, St Johns, and St Marys Primary Schools too from the children’s race and also for the Ely Hereward Rotary Club who act as race stewards.
