Christmas Collection December 2023

Still standing at the end of one night's collections

The people of Ely and the surrounding area once again made generous donations to the Rotary Club of Ely who will now be able to support local charities, disaster areas and other good causes. This year's collection around the streets of Ely  the High Street collections on two Saturdays  and one day at Tesco’s raised approx £9,000. This is very close to the best we have ever managed.   Obviously the Club is extremely grateful to the householders and those visiting Ely for their great generosity.

The organisers also wish to express their sincere thanks to Geoff Glover Van Sales & Hire,  Cambridge Commodities, EACH charity shop, Marmalade & Jam Café, Tesco’s and Johnsons the Cleaners for all their generous support. Lastly thanks to Power2Go for donating to us a battery generator which replaced the old petrol unit and is so much healthier for Santa.  Joining the Ely Rotary Club were members of the following organisations:- the Inner Wheel Club of Ely, Rotary Club of Ely Hereward, Pos+ability charity, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, Ely Rowing Club and  Ely Swimming Club all of whom will receive a donation. There are also a number of individual volunteers to whom we are  most grateful.
