At a club Handover meeting, outgoing President John Yates handed over to Janet Porter, the Club’s President for 2015/16. Janet is the fifth lady President in the club’s eleven-year history.
John’s year has been one of the most successful to date – raising over £6,000 for local and worldwide causes including Pos+Ability, Act4Kidz, Ely Royal British Legion, MAGPAS, Ely Christmas Lights, Cambridgeshire FindaCure, Ely Town Crier Competition, End Polio Now and funding Shelterboxes for Nepal.
Funds are raised from a wide variety of events, such as Aquafest, The Father Christmas Street Collection, and the Ouse Washes Experience – as well as the traditional shaking of buckets and rattling of tins.
