The Rotary Club of Ely has raised more than £3,000 thanks to donations towards their Christmas collections appeal.
The club said £3,252 was donated and that, after a small amount of expenditure, £2,924 will be distributed.
Mike Axford, group member, said: “We would like to wish everyone a happier new year and thank you for the support you gave to our Christmas collections.
“We would also like to thank Geoff Glover Van Sales & Hire, Ist Call Hire, Spotted in Ely, Tesco’s Ely, The Rotary Club of Ely Hereward and the Inner Wheel Club of Ely together with a small number of volunteers for all their support.
“Whilst we were disappointed not to be able to collect from house to house as usual, we were delighted with the response to our tour of the streets so that everyone could still see Father Christmas on his sleigh.
