Wisbech Grammar School sixth Form pupil Maddie Booth organised the event to raise money for Unicef.

Maddie is one of the regional finalists for the Young Ambassador of the Year Award representing the East of England and has already raised more than £2,000 for charities within the local community in the past year.

She said: “Volunteering and fund raising have been a large part of my life for the last three years and I have gained so much from these activities.

“It is important that we all give something back, however small.
