Members of the Ely Rotary Club would like to thank locals for raising £7,348 in their Christmas collection.
The street collection raised £5,808 and the High Street collections made a total of £1,540 – the money will be donated to local charities, disaster areas and other good causes.
Mike Axford, organiser, said: “I am 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.
“If anyone was out when we called round but would still like to donate to support our charitable giving please go to www.mydonate.bt.com
“We’d like to express our sincere thanks to 1st Call (Hire & Sales), The Dock, Ely, Common Farm Liveries, Witchford, James Menswear, Ely Co-op, for their support and assistance.”
Joining the two Ely Rotary Clubs were members from the Inner Wheel Club of Ely, the local charity Pos+ability, the Ely Rowing Club, members and leaders of the Cambridgeshire Police Cadets, students and staff from Ely College, Tesco community staff and other volunteers to whom they are also most grateful.
