Ely’s two rotary clubs have been busy this week for different reasons.
While Ely Hereward Rotary Club held its annual giant Easter egg raffle, raising hundreds in the process, a new member joined the Rotary Club of Ely.
This year’s ‘Win a Giant Easter egg’ raffle - organised by Ely Hereward Rotary Club - raised a cracking £385.30 for local charities and good causes.
The winners were: Jenny Doncaster (The Almonry), Elisabeth Seymour (Ely Fudge Shop), Sue Reeder (Burrows News), Adrian Algar (Sutton Conservative Club), Tina Webb, (Toppers Hairdressers), Phil Hunter (The Albert), Rachel Haynes (Starbucks), Jacquie (Haddenham Galleries) and Mrs Lambert (The Lamb Hotel).
The Hereward Rotary Club would like to thank the local businesses who supported the raffle, and everyone who bought a ticket.
