Children in Need Collection

Pudsey with Mark Robinson

2016 collection at the Lion Yard, Cambridge

Cambridge Rutherford has been collecting for Children in Need since 1985. In November 2016 it was held in the Lion Yard shopping arcade in Cambridge. Rutherford members collected during the evening of Wednesday 16th and Friday 18th November with great support from Radio Cambridgeshire and Pudsey. We raised the very handy sum of £1,650 for Chidren in Need.

Our thanks due to our organiser Colin Chrebelski and to the management of the Lion Yard for allowing us to collect there. We are also most grateful to Mike Arbuckle propretor of Jamaica Blue for providing us coffees and pies and to Boost for drinks and snacks, all very much appreciated by the Rutherford collecting contingent.

Colin said "Chidren in Need is a really fulfilling event - with lovely people stopping to chat and giving what they can, sometimes telling us about themselves, or Rotary, or just passing a few minutes with us"
