Two events at The Kings Arms pub in Ely raised over £500 in a week for Fenprobe’s Talking News service.
The events, a rock n roll accordion concert and a charity pub quiz night, were both well attended and took place at the pub on St Mary’s Street.
“All our volunteers are absolutely buzzing after I emailed the results,” said Fenprobe secretary Janet Smith.
“Perhaps it may kick start ideas amongst others.”
Fenprobe provides audio copies of local newspaper stories to the visually impaired, providing a service to keep recipients informed of happenings in their local community.
