Donation to The Save Our Spire Campaign
On a warm Tuesday night at Slepe Hall, we were entertained by our guest speaker Neville Runham who had come to give us the low-down on the high-up, and told us about the campaign to save the spire on the Free Church in St Ives.
The spire has stood since the 1860s and is a major feature of the town, and given that over two dozen community groups use the Free Church, 7-days a week, plus all the one-off events, such as our own concerts, we felt that this was a project well worth supporting as a community organisation. The campaign needs to raise £55,000, and our picture shows President Mike Raettig, in summer kit, presenting Neville with our cheque for £1000. Here's to another 150 years of the spire standing watch over St Ives.

Rotary Sings
The Rotary Voices Choir, of which our very own singing superstar Moira Penney is a member, has been packing them in at a recent fund-raising event held in St Mary Magdalene Church in Brampton. Together with musical acts Rhapsody and The Bad Randoms, The Sing for Spring Concert raised hundreds of pounds, which will be used to support The Rotary End Polio Now campaign, local churches, as well as our local Rotary Clubs' charitable donations.
Well done Moira and the choir and here's the Hunts Post article about the event.

Life Education Mobile Classrooms
Further to our support for the brilliant Life Education Programme, their high-tec mobile classrooms now look even better - well we would say that wouldn't we - with the addition of our Rotary logo, where we join our sister clubs of St Neots St Marys and Whittlesey.
Our pics show President Elect Moira Penney with Julie Gray from the Life Education Programme, when the classroom visited Westfield School in St Ives. Rtn Iain Martin was also on hand and mighty impressed he was too.
Life Education Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is a national charity serving the needs of children in the UK. They deliver ‘life skills’ based, primary drug prevention programmes to young people aged between 3-11 in mainstream and 3 - 19 in Special Schools.

Presentation to The Papworth Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group
As a club we have strong links to the Papworth IPF Support Group and it was a pleasure to be able to donate funds to them of £250 to go towards the group's activities. The photo shows Rtn Sally Heffer presenting the cheque to Chairman Ron Flewett and she and Rtn Iain Martin enjoyed meeting members of the group and learning how the support network works.
The Papworth Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group has been established to provide information, support and the opportunity for patients with pulmonary fibrosis to meet others with the same or similar chest diseases.
Meetings are held every two months, usually on the second Friday of the month, at The Hub, Cambourne Community Centre, Cambourne CB23 6GW. Contact details are on the group's website www.papworthpfsupportgroup.co.uk/
