CHRISHALL market stall-holders have donated £525 to three charities in the area.

Cheques for £175 were presented to Cambridge Cancer Help Centre, Chrishall Village Show, and First Responders at the market's Summer Special.

Anne Fleming received the cheque on behalf of the help centre from broadcaster Mandy Morton.

Mandy said: "I first came here when I had just joined BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"Chrishall is a very special village."

Since 2002, stall-holders have given 10 per cent of their takings to charity twice yearly.

And in the last six years, market volunteers have raised £6,075 for a number of local, national, and international charities.

Elsewhere, Chrishall Parish Council presented Laurence Brett with champagne, for his efforts in raising £23,000 to help refurbish the village's children's playground.

And First Responders were presented with a £150 voucher from Tesco, to buy a sat nav system.
