A host of local charities and causes have received a big boost thanks to Soham Carnival.

This year’s carnival raised a whopping £6,500 which will be divided between over a dozen charities with the bulk of the cash going to the St Andrews Soham Swimming Pool Association.

The money will be used towards maintenance and upkeep of the public pool.

Next year’s carnival will take place on Monday May 28 at Soham recreation ground.
