A charity which has close links with Shepreth Wildlife Park has received money from a local business.
Scientific equipment manufacturer Grant Instruments, which is based in the village, raised £100 for the Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity.
Staff at the firm donated money towards the cause at a lunch buffet in conjunction with Eat What You Want day – a holiday which celebrates gorging on favourite foods for one day of the year.
The staff had to donate at least £1 each and dig deep into their cupboards to take part in the feast. As a result, an array of delicious cakes and homemade snacks was donated.
The charity was established in March 2011 to raise funds for conservation work and to educate visitors on species threatened with extinction.
