LATEST CLUB NEWS......................

Our President Julian Landy welcomes another new member into the Rotary Club of Cambridge at our first meeting of the New Year.

Neil Whiteside is a member of the management team at Cambridge 105 Radio and presenter of "Weekday Breakfast".

Juilan presented him with his membership certificate and said "Welcome Neil, you are the latest of several new members we have inducted in the past months and we look forward to you joining us."


Cambridge 105 radio's Christmas Day broadcast of our Carol Concert at Great St Mary's Church attracts an audience of 10,000 listeners!


Around 600 people gathered in Great St Mary’s Church, Cambridge for the Rotary Club of Cambridge Christmas Concert. Seven youth and school choirs sang a variety of Christmas music from traditional carols to contemporary Christmas songs with the audience joining in with the carols at the end of each half. The compere was Mandy Morton of Cambridge 105 Radio, the local community radio station which recorded the Concert for broadcast on Christmas Day. It is likely that over £5,000 was raised for two local charities- the Arthur Rank Hospice and the Cambridge Churches Homeless Project, but we are still counting!

Rotarian John Barrett who masterminded the event said   

"I want to thank everyone who came to the Carol Service and who helped with the evening to make it such an enormous success!"


We distribute some extra funds! 

At a recent meeting of the Council of the Rotary Club of Cambridge it was decided to release an additional £12,000 from Club funds for good causes.

A total of 22 different good causes and charities will be receiving their contribution over the next few months having been nominated by members of the club.

The largest of these will be £2,000 to Cambridgeshire Communities Foundation for our President Julian Landy's Charitable Cause - Homes for the Homeless.

Other names on the list include £1,000 to Camsight, £1,000 to Dementia Compass, £400 to Sick Childens Trust and £600 to complete our South African Numeracy project in association with The Rotary Club of Helderberg Sunrise, South Africa.

Acting Secretary Graeme Minto said “We are delighted to make these extra donations which will be most welcome over this season of giving!”
