Dunham Woods Light Railway only runs a few times a year, but on next weekend the train will be running to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Members of the March, Chatteris and district fundraising group for Macmillan will be providing refreshments, including homemade cakes, teas and cold drinks. There will also be stalls and a raffle with prizes.

The woods will be open from 1-5pm, entry and car parking are both free.
