A rammed to the rafters festive fayre raised more than £400 for the March mayor’s charity which is putting life saving equipment at key locations around the town.
The Christmas event at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel raised £426 for the Have a Heart campaign which was launched to buy defibrillators.
March mayor councillor Rob Skoulding, who is not taking any money for his role as a councillor and is instead ploughing it into the campaign, said: “It was a jam packed event, the busiest one yet and we have been running 10 years.”
The fayre has previously raised money for variety of charities including East Anglian Children’s Hospices, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and barriers for the Sixteen Foot road.
“Every penny raised will go to defibrillators which could save a life,” Cllr Skoulding said.
