THE Little Gransden Air Show, which raises money for BBC Children in Need, has its most successful event in its 17-year history over the August bank holiday weekend.
Organiser Dave Poile MBE, 58, told The Hunts Post: "They say there is a recession but our takings before costs were �46,000. We will be able to give �20,000 to charity, which is a record."
Some of the money will be also given to local children's charities.
Mr Poile, who works in the control room at Cambridgeshire police headquarters in Hinchingbrooke, said a bidder paid �1,200 in an auction for a taxi ride in a Lancaster when vouchers for the ride normally cost �200.
Mr Poile said: "People were extremely generous."
INFORMATION: A DVD of The Little Gransden shows from 2008 and 2009 will be on sale next month (October) raising money for East Anglian Children's Hospices.
