GOLFERS and Army Cadets have become the latest heroes for the MS Therapy Centre in Huntingdon.
St Neots Golf Club raised £1,200 for the centre through a charity golf day and Army Cadets from Chatteris added £400 after packing shopping at a Co-op store.
For four days in December, eight young cadets and five adult instructors raised the money by packing shopping for customers at the Chatteris store, raising cash to share among good causes.
The cheque for the MS Therapy Centre was presented to manager Zena Betts and trustee Sandra Wilcox by Joe Finch, 16, Stephanie Littler, 13, and Samuel Matthews, 14.
