More than £1,500 was raised for charity at a family fun day which was held in Littleport on Friday.
The annual Branching Out Charity Shop fundraiser was opened at 10.30am by Ely Town Crier Avril Hayter.
“There was a huge amount of support from the community,” said Chris Hook, personal assistant to the general manager.
“All the money raised this year will be going towards our new doors campaign to replace some old wooden doors on the workshop with double glazed doors.
“This year the community helped the charity that supports people with learning disabilities to raise over £1,500 on the day.
“Branching Out would like to thank everyone who came to the event for their support.”
