The drink was flowing at a Whittlesey charity shop on Friday to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

It was just part of celebrations for staff and volunteers at the RSPCA shop, in Lovell's Court.

Jane Smith, from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, kicked off the fun when she opened a bottle of Buck's Fizz. Volunteers and members of the public were also treated to cake.

Diana Robinson, RSPCA branch manager for Peterborough and district, which covers Whittlesey, said: "That little shop has made in excess of £260,000 and it has all been down to the generosity of people in the Whittlesey area.
