AN evening of glitz and glamour attended by South Cambridgeshire councillors and local dignitaries raised more than £250 for charity.
Hosted by Cllr Jim Stewart, chairman of South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC), and attended by 150 guests, the event raised money for CamSight.
This was the first civic reception to take place at the council offices in Cambourne with district and parish councillors, local dignitaries and business people and representatives from CamSight all invited.
