A GROUP of women from Littleport raised money for Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge by having a charity tattoo.
The group of seven women, led by Louise Brighton whose mother Jinny is battling breast cancer, headed to 2-19 Tattoo's in Littleport where they all opted to have a tattoo of a pink ribbon, a symbol of Breast Cancer Care, and the fight against the disease.
Mrs Brighton said: "I was very pleased with how it all went on the day, we did a lot better than I had expected and mum said she was really proud, so it was great."
The group managed to raise around �120 from the event to go with the hundreds of pounds they have raised through various other activities, including a sponsored head shave and a raffle.
