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.
