Hundreds of people helped raise £1,700 at Little Thetford Village Feast on Saturday to buy a defibrillator for the community.
Ely Hero Award-winner Bert Russell and Lucy Frazer MP cut the ribbon to officially open the annual feast.
Rachel Watts, one of the organisers, said: “Many people came to enjoy the various different stalls and attractions on offer and much fun was had by all.
“The Feast had a very specific item to fundraise for this year - a defibrillator for the village. A massive £1,700 was raised which will enable the Feast Committee to proceed and purchase the life-saving piece of equipment.
“The Feast Committee passed their thanks to all those who supported the Feast in any way including many local businesses who donated a lovely range of raffle prizes.”
Lucy Frazer MP said: “It was an honour to open the Feast with local hero Bert Russell who recently does so much for the local community. And well done to the winners of the various competitions.”
