Members gave generously throughout the year with all donations going towards the local mental health charity.

David Pope (Club Captain) said, “Mental health is such an important issue. We all know someone who has struggled with depression or anxiety and it is so important that services are available when people need support. CPSL Mind do an amazing job, especially helping people in mental health crisis through their Sanctuary service both in Peterborough and Cambridge. We are so pleased we have been able to help such a great local charity.”
