An inspirational woman from Wisbech has raised more than £800 for charity after making a giant ball out of loom bands.

Jade Farm, 27, who is visually impaired, spent 18 months creating the piece in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Jade asked for sponsorship online and received support from the Wisbech Community Chest Facebook group.

The ball was unravelled at last year’s Wisbech Rock Festival and measured 3306 ft in total.

Councillor Steve Tierney, assisted by brothers Thomas and Alexander Porter of Four Feathers Baden Powell Scouts, conducted a collection at the event and boosted the total by £248.
