A bacon butty festival in Wimblington raised more than £700 for the village Christmas lights display.
More than 300 butties were enjoyed to help bring in £730 to boost the village festive lights display which this year will be bigger and better than ever.
Joanne Rose, who helped organise the event, said: “We have two bacon butty mornings a year, both to boost the Christmas lights funds.
“Plenty of people help out and residents donate raffle prizes. It means we can build a really impressive festive display for the village to enjoy.”
This year promises to be bigger and better than ever on Christmas lights switch on day on Sunday November 25.
