A race night and table top sale has brought in around £600 for the Wimblington Against the Anaerobic Digester community fund to help pay for High Court costs.
The aim is to raise enough to fight planning permission granted for an anaerobic digester to be built in the village by Fengrain.
Angela Johnson said: “The table top sale had many generous donations which a few dedicated individuals helped sort through .
“Some of the goods given were brand new, unused or unwanted items, others were in excellent condition.
“The hall was full of items ranging from a set of new golf clubs, kitchen ware, glasses and vases, books, toiletries and accessories, jewellery, an arts/craft table run by one of our residents and a table of handmade Christmas decorations made by one of our committee members.

“Having advertised in a number of places the number of people through the door was somewhat disappointing. But almost everyone that did pop along found something to buy and helped the village raise a further £400 plus to put towards the funds to fight against this Anaerobic Digester being erected in our beautiful countryside.”
Some of the left over goodies were taken to a Sunday car boot sale which raised a further £150 and a second table sale at Doddington’s Christmas fair brought in more funds.
