A village campaign group fighting against plans for an anaerobic digester held its first fund raising night which brought in more than £900.
The money is being raised to help fund a barrister so that Wimblington Against the Anaerobic Digester can continue the fight into the High Court.
A race night at Parkfield Sports Centre was well supported by local residents who believe they must stand united to win its battle against Fengrain’s application for an Anaerobic Digester to be erected in Wimblington.
Campaigner Angela Johnson said: “A terrific, fun evening was had by all who attended and thank you to everyone for coming along and also to the staff at Parkfield Sports Centre.
“All of the eight races were sponsored by local businesses and individuals which got the funds off to a good start. Thank you to each and every one of them.”

The sports centre arranged a music bingo quiz helping put more money into the pot.
