The Alconbury Rainbows group raised more than £130 by taking part in a walk around the village for charity.

A group of 10 rainbows, along with parents and group leaders, completed their feat to raise money for Walking with the Wounded, a charity which funds the re-education or training of wounded servicemen and women.

The event took place in December and saw a grand total of £135 raised.

The group meets on Wednesday nights in Alconbury, at 4pm. To find out more, search for Girlguiding Alconbury on Facebook.
