A COUNTRY show has been organised to raise funds for local organisations next month, and some of the money will go to the Milton Hospice.
Organiser Terry Cowles said: "We really wanted to bring something to the town that would benefit the com munity," he said.
The show will be at the Littleport Leisure Centre on August 6, from 10.30am-6pm, and the non-profit making event will feature classic cars, a fun fair and inflatable rides.
All-day tickets for the inflatable rides will be sold for 50p, with all proceeds going to Milton Hospice. In addition to this 50p from every pre-event ticket will also be handed over to Each.
"We've got quirky things like ferret racing and a scariest scarecrow competition," Mr Cowles said.
There will also be a shaggiest pooch competition, children's karting, a fun house, activity course and musical entertainment from Cottenham Brass Band.
There will also be free car boot pitches available.
Mr Cowles said he is looking for volunteers to marshal the event. He can be contacted via the event website: www.littleportshow2006.com.
INFO: Entry to the Littleport Country Show will be £2. Contact 01353 615824 for tickets and more information.
