THE Inner Wheel Club of Ely presented emergency medical charity Magpas with a cheque for more than £4,000 this week, a record for the club.
Over a period of 12 months, members held a series of fund-raising events including a grand concert held at The Brook in Soham in September.
In all, the club raised a whopping £4224.73 for the charity.
Betty Flack, past president of the club, said: “We chose Magpas as our chosen charity for the year as we all believe it’s a wonderful charity and more than ever they need support.
“I am thrilled that we raised such an amazing amount and to be able to present £4224.73 makes me feel very proud knowing that the money raised will make a real difference to the lifesaving work all the Helimedix do night and day.
Debbie Florence, fund-raising manager at Magpas, said: “We are very grateful to Betty for supporting Magpas, to everyone from the Inner Wheel and of course to everyone that took part in the events.”
