Wine and Cheese tasting was the theme for the April meeting of Ely Inner Wheel which took place in Powchers Hall, Ely Cathedral.

Stephen Bourne, director of the Wine Society spoke informatively and encouraged members to sample a range of wines with different cheeses.

This was followed by a buffet. The evening was well attended by Rotarians from both of the city’s Rotary Clubs as well as other guests. The Tombola also raised funds for charity.

During the evening Robert Barnes took the opportunity to present a cheque for £7,500 to Donna Talbot, director of fundraising for Arthur Rank Hospice for Lisa’s Fund. This also happens to be president Mary Rone’s Charity for the year.

Next meeting will be the annual International Charity fundraising supper in St Mary’s Church Hall on May 24 at 6pm.
