WELCOME TO ELY


A beautiful city steeped in history, is seventeen miles north of Cambridge. The city is dominated by the ancient cathedral, "The ship of the Fens" which has sailed the fen skyline for over 10 centuries. Many of the ancient monastic buildings have been wonderfully preserved and are still in use today.
Oliver Cromwell, who was born in Huntingdon, took up residence in Ely in 1636 and lived here for the next 10 years. His house still stands and is currently used as a museum. From this ancient history, we lead on to the history of the


ROTARY CLUB OF ELY

The Rotary Club of Ely has now been serving the communities of Ely and district for over 80 years, supporting many well known charities in this area (see recent donations page).
On the international front we have supported many projects including Water Aid in Africa and Asia, and are presently active in Rotary Foundation's 'Polio Plus Campaign' to rid the world of Polio. In addition we send 'Shelter Boxes' to disaster areas throughout the world when they occur.
Our fund raising events are already well known in Ely, some of which are the Annual Christmas Collection, London Welsh Male Voice Choir concert, and he Ely Fireworks display.

The other main event is the annual Aquafest Riverside gala (see link to its own site) which has now been running for some 40 years, an event that we stage to say 'thank you' to the people of Ely and District for their support in helping us to raise monies for local charities. 

 

The Club is also regularly involved in activities organised by other clubs/groups:

-each year the Club participates in KIDS OUT a day designed by Rotary Clubs nationally to entertain mentally and/or physically-handicapped children and their carers.
