As in previous years, the event will feature a charity component with donations (food and monetary) being accepted for the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank. This is an excellent opportunity for PMTC and PMTC YLG members to support the Cambridge Food Bank heading in to the holiday season, along with getting together for a networking and learning opportunity”.
