Soham Staploe Rotary Club presented a cheque for more than £350 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices this week.

One of the features of the club’s annual charter night dinner is the whisky draw.

Each club member provides a bottle while all those present buy tickets. Occasionally, a particularly choice bottle will be auctioned by honorary club member and TV auctioneer David Palmer.

This year’s charter night was one of the final duties of outgoing president, Trevor Cole, whose prerogative it was to choose the charity to benefit from the draw.

Trevor chose the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Karen Newton and Steve Ford, two members of the EACH fundraising team, attended the club’s latest meeting at their new venue, the Maid’s Head in Wicken, to collect a cheque for £352.
