A karaoke, race night and auction is at the Anchor Inn in Wimblington to help raise money to buy a robotic leg for a local dad.
Matthew Smith, who still battles to work as a builder despite his pain, hopes he can raise enough to eventually replace his NHS prosthetic leg.
His friend Shawn Hudson set up a Go Fund Me page in a bid to raise around £30,000 to buy him a state of the art limb that uses sophisticated sensors to help him better manage stairs and uneven surfaces.
Matthew, of Wisbech St Mary, works as a builder for Sanctuary Housing where he carries out maintenance to the housing stock including plastering ceilings.
He had his amputated following a crash ten years ago.

His friend Shawn said: “Matthew especially struggles with the knee joint on his current leg. I have so much respect for the man, after his accident he went straight back to the job he was doing. He deserves a bit of help.”
The charity night is at the Anchor Inn on Saturday January 28 at 7.30pm. All welcome.
