James Bond winner makes evening a success

The Hunts Post competition winner Danny Conway was the star of a James Bond-themed charity night on Saturday at Abbots Ritpon village hall.

The Hunts Post launched an appeal for a replacement Bond after the original person due to play the British secret agent backed out at the last minute.

Mr Conway successfully applied for the role. The Brampton man, who bears a striking resemblance to Sean Connery, entertained guests by posing with them and a bevy of Bond girls in front of an Aston Martin.

Huntingdon and District Round Table secretary Thomas Birch, who helped to organise the event said: “It went really well. Though the final figure on how much was raised is yet to be confirmed.”
