"I want to say a huge big thank you to Cambridge Aid for all the funds you have given the families and individuals throughout the year.
It has made such a difference to many families - not just for the essentials, and I can’t tell you how often people have been in tears as the gesture is so poignant for them. The money will definitely make such a difference to the families this year."
