A Cambridgeshire charity has received more than £18,000 for a new minibus thanks to a large American company.

Eddie's, a Waterbeach-based charity which supports people with learning disabilities, was given the funds from telecoms company Qualcomm.

The Edmund Trust division charity has received £18,427.27 for a new minibus and Qualcomm has agreed to pay a year's worth of maintenance.

John Ellis, chief executive at The Edmund Trust and Eddie's said: "Everything we do is about enhancing the lives of people with learning disabilities through a wide range of services.

"This minibus has given us the opportunity to enrich more people's lives. We are so grateful to Qualcomm for this incredibly kind donation."
