REGULARS at a village pub have clubbed together to raise cash for charity.

Customers at the Pheasant pub in Great Chishill took part in several events over the festive period to raise money for the Cistic Fybrosis Trust.

The catalyst for this was Carl Pledger, whose four-year old daughter Amalie suffers from the disease.

Mr Pledger said: "I have been lucky enough to get a place in the London Marathon, running for cistic fybrosis in April this year.

"I have been doing a lot of training with Simon and Ollie Oughton, the landlord and lady at the Pheasant, and they have been excellent in their help with my efforts to raise money for the trust. I'm really touched."

Events included a charity meal, which raised £650, and a New Years Eve "tarts and vicars" party, where another £150 was collected.
