The donation will help us provide vital mental health support for young people in primary schools in South Cambridgeshire as well as for young people staying with us in our Cambridge accommodation. Our aim is to assist young people, in a crisis situation, to improve their lives and to explore their talents allowing them to contribute, thrive and belong in their communities’.

    Ian Chamberlain, Chairman of the Rotary Organising Committee said ‘We’re pleased that we can support the community by organising the event that helps local charities and organisations and that gives local people so much pleasure. It’s always really good to see so many people enjoying themselves. The backing we receive from the business community is vital to the organisation of the event, so we thank the sponsors and everyone else very sincerely for all their help. We hope many people will register; well ensure everyone will have a great morning on the 13th May’.
