The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
The inaugural charity ball hosted by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mayor James Palmer has raised more than £12,000 for an organisation committed to helping emergency services staff suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Around 200 guests enjoyed a night of music and entertainment in the stunning surroundings of The Lady Chapel at Ely Cathedral in aid of Cambridgeshire-based charity PTSD999. Guests of the charity joined leading figures from the county’s business and political worlds for the event, which featured a three course fine-dining menu, charitable auction and live band. Mayor Palmer said: “For my first ball I honestly had no expectations about what could be raised, but I’m really chuffed to be handing over a cheque for more than £12,000. “Big thanks have to go to all those who had a hand in organising this very enjoyable event, those who donated prizes and those who came on the night and took part in our fundraising auctions and raffle. “I’m also really pleased to be able to draw more attention to the good work that PTSD999 does.
