More than £400 has been raised by the Whittlesey Festival Committee after they held a coffee morning.

The money will go towards providing as many children’s free rides as possible at the 11th annual Whittlesey Festival this year.

The coffee morning took place at Whittlesey Christian Church in Broad Street.

Home-made cakes were donated by the public and family and friends.

There was also a raffle and entertainment from singer and musician Peter Griggs from Norfolk who encouraged everyone to sing-along to some well-known favourites.
