Candles were lit on Ely Market Place on Saturday for a special vigil in memory of all those who lost their lives in the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.
Crowds of people were joined by newly re-elected MP Lucy Frazer and the Mayor of Ely Councillor Richard Hobbs for the ‘We Stand Together’ event, which was organised by Spotted in Ely.
The Bishop of Huntingdon gave a moving address to those who gathered in the blustery conditions, which made lighting the candles a bit difficult.
Two volunteers from the Re-Imagine Resource Centre at the Witchford Recycling site - Ruth and Tashi - had made special bracelets and hairbands which they sold for the OneLove appeal launched after the Manchester attrocity.
The hearts on these came from a red carpet used to welcome the Queen on a recent visit to Newmarket.
Sale of the trinkets raised a total of £182.40 on the night.
