THE Dean and Chapter of Ely Cathedral presented cheques for £3,868 to Highfield School and £1,582 to the Elysian Riding for the Disabled (RDA) after a Candle Service was held in the cathedral.

The organisations were beneficiaries of the Charity Christmas Carol Concert which was held last December.

Highfield School, based at Downham Road, Ely, provides a secure learning environment for pupils with special educational needs. It aims to provide excellent education and pastoral care for pupils to develop both socially and academically. The Elysian RDA, based at Witchford, provides riding and driving sessions for people with disabilities.
