Black Cat Radio has handed over £300 to a 10-year-old girl and the charity fund supported by the mayor of St Neots.

In March, Black Cat launched a campaign to raise £2,000 to provide radios for people feeling isolated during the pandemic.

Money was left over, so, £165.25 was given to Aida Palfrey and £150 to Cllr Stephen Ferguson.

Aida, who attends the Samuel Pepys School in St Neots, has a genetic condition called CDKL5 and her family is raising £6,000 for a specialist shower bench.

Black Cat Radio breakfast show presenter Ste Greenall said “We were inundated with financial support for our appeal to buy radios and had money left.

“Stephen Ferguson is a man of action with a huge passion for the town.
