Generous volunteers gave their time on Saturday to help a family which was left devastated after arsonists struck at their Three Holes home for a fourth time get back on track.
CCTV was installed at the former Red hart pub by security technician Martin Fenn, while other volunteers helped with painting, gardening and cleaning.
Sara Ingram and her family were left penniless after repeated arson attacks left their home and possessions uninsurable.
The most recent attack, in the early hours of October 2, prompted The Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard to launch an appeal. Readers responded by donating £543.
Mrs Ingram said: “My family and I would like to say a big thank you to Martin Fenn and Lucy Telfer for giving up their day on for the Sara Saturday.

“A huge thank you and hug for Debbie Clark who also gave up her Saturday to take the twins and I to Pigeon Farm as a treat - it was a lovely day and we really enjoyed.

“It’s so nice to get away from the broken dream that is our home and forget it all to spend quality time with the twins and a really special lady.
“Thank you also to Joan Smyth and her sister who delivered two much needed large storage boxes.
“Also Stephanie Gardner for giving the twins for the lovely safari and school bus toy boxes.
“A big thank you to Jan French giving us lots of lovely bedding and curtains.
“We would also like to thank Rachel Green who has collected clothes for my son and some lovely toys and curtains for us to use to try and keep the cold out of the room. Also, a big thank you to the people of Soham their generosity and to Steve Neugebauer for the cleaning fluid.”
The family is looking for anyone who can provide a water boiler and also appealing for anybody who can offer storage for furniture. Warm clothing would also be greatly appreciated.
