On the night, all 12 races were also sponsored by Peterborough businesses to add to the fund.

A spokesman for the stadium said the £14,700 was more than they had been expecting to raise on the night. The money will be forwarded onto the Cancer Research unit the charity occupies at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
