Cambridge Aid has been helping local people for 140 years. They offer financial help to individuals and families in need, whilst the referring organisation sponsor may be dealing with the underlying causes of distress. The grants give comfort, provide basic essential needs and help to maintain dignity.
Cambridge Aid has historical links with the Citizens Advice Bureau, and several of the trustees are existing or former voluntary CAB advisers. Others have extensive experience in the health and charitable sectors.
Since 2018, The Rotary Club of Cambridge has donated £12,700 to Cambridge Aid, from events and other fundraising efforts. These include our 2018 & 2019 Children’s Christmas Carol Concerts in Great St Mary’s Church, Quiz Nights, one member’s Plant Sale, and various small donations. Some members are currently giving the money they would normally pay for Rotary Club lunches to this good cause.
