A Roddons Housing Association youth group last week handed over a cheque for £800 toGreatOrmondStreetHospital.
The Hospital was chosen as Beth Moss, one of the group members, had a sister who had treatment there.
The group raised funds at Roddons’ March and Chatteris Tenants’ Associations’ events including a teddy bears’ picnic last summer and a Halloween event where there was a tombola, raffle and guess how many competitions.
It also held coffee mornings and a bake off atFleming Court, March, a sheltered housing scheme where cakes were sold to residents at afternoon tea.
Sally Taylor, Resident Involvement Officer for Roddons Housing Association, said:
“We’re really proud of these young people who have made a big impression on their local community through their fundraising efforts.”
