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.”
