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. The collection around the streets of Ely raised £7,441, the High Street collections on two Saturdays £1,082 and at Tesco’s on two occasions £717 making a total of £9,240. This is a record amount in spite of having to cancel collecting on one evening due to appalling weather. 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, 1st Call (Hire & Sales), EACH charity shop, Marmalade & Jam Café, Tesco’s and Johnsons the Cleaners for all their generous support. 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, EARTH charity, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, Ely Rowing Club, Ely Swimming Club, Friends of St John’s Primary School & Haddenham Guides who will all receive a donation. There are also a number of individual volunteers to whom they are also most grateful.
The club is delighted with the support we have received this year from those helping towards the collection but also with the generosity of many people. It appears that many look forward to this collection as it is their starting point for Christmas and the number of positive comments is also encouraging particularly on a wet miserable night. If
