Sarah Howard, who lives in the village, organised the event at the village hall in aid of the Shetland Pony Welfare Trust.

She said: “We had an amazing response and raised a whopping £563.86.”

The Shetland Pony Welfare Trust is a small registered charity based just outside of Cambridge, and was originally set up to rescue and rehabilitate the small ponies – but they now take all horses.
