The City of Ely Flower Club raised £180 for charity thanks to a tombola at an open meeting.

More than 140 people attended the event on Thursday (10) which was led by national demonstrator Lorena Dyer.

The money will boost funds for Ely Agriculture Resources Training in Horticulture (EARTH), which is based at Larkfields, Ely.

Margaret Dooling, of the club, said: “Lorena wowed the audience with her displays entitled ‘A Christmas Wish’.

“The flowers were superb: orchids, chrysanthemum blooms, roses, carnations, lillies etc, they were all amazing.

“She also thoroughly entertained the audience with her funny tales.

“The hall looked stunning with white tablecloths and wreath table arrangements with crystal goblet inserts arranged by members.
