A GENEROUS resident has given Cambourne Parish Council £10,000 to put towards a building that will be used to store the village's sports equipment.
The parish council has refused to reveal who its mystery benefactor is, but said it was very grateful for the donation.
Cambourne parish council clerk John Vickery said: "The building is going to be a grounds maintenance building, which will incorporate an office, toilets, staff changing and storage for the sports clubs."
The total cost of the building, which will be located on land in Back Lane, will be about £60,000. Work is scheduled to start in the New Year and be complete by late spring or early summer.
