WELCOME TO ELY
The Rotary Club of Ely has now been serving the communities of Ely and district for over 70 years, supporting many well known charities in this area (see recent donations page).
The other main event is the annual Aquafest Riverside gala (see link to its own site) which has now been running for some 40 years, an event that we stage to say 'thank you' to the people of Ely and District for their support in helping us to raise monies for local charities.
The Club is also regularly involved in activities organised by other clubs/groups:
-as sponsors and participants in the annual Macmillan Cancer Support Group "Riverside Walk",raising £8/900 each time.
-as sponsors and Marshals in the annual Ely Triathlon and Aquathon Event; this is not a fund-raiser,rather the objective is to increase local awareness in sporting activities.
-as Marshals in the annual Ely Fun Run,a fund-raiser organised by the Arthur Rank Hospice.
-each year the Club participates in KIDS OUT a day designed by Rotary Clubs nationally to entertain mentally and/or physically-handicapped children and their carers.
