A delighted committee were proud to present Cancer Research UK a cheque for £9029.31 .
The money was raised at the Cottenham Yesteryear Road Run, relaunched this year in aid of Cancer Research.
The event had over 370 entries consisting of motorbikes, scooters, vintage and classic cars, tractors, stationary engines and commercials. The procession of vehicles travelled through Cottenham, Rampton, Willingham, Over, Longstanton, Oakington and Histon collecting donations on the way.
Local people made it a very special day, Oakington even had a party to welcome the procession to their village.
Vivien Lampard, secretary, said ‘It was more popular than we had imagined, everyone concerned with running the event have been bowled over by the generosity of the local people. We are looking forward to running it again next year, and with all the good wishes we have received from this year we are hopeful for another massive cheque to give to Cancer Research’
