Rotary Car Parking in Cambridge this Christmas
The Rotary Good Causes car parking, at the University Downing Site, Department of Chemistry and Cambridge Assessment Centre will start on Sat 25 November for Christmas shoppers to use the three car parks. I am delighted to say that last year we raised over £40,000 for charities and Rotary good causes.
The Rotary club of Cambridge South and lots of friends, will man the car parks for six weekends starting on 25-26 November until 31 Dec 2016, plus 27- 29 Dec.. There will be a small fee of just £7 for as long as needed within car park opening hours.The car parks are at Park Terrace (turn right at the University Arms hotel off Regent Street and it is on the left), Chemistry block on Lensfield Road and the Downing site on Tennis Court Road (the pedestrian exit from this car park is onto Downing Street nearly opposite John Lewis). This last one is open until 7pm so is also good for the Panto matinee. Please help us to raise a record amount by looking out for the Rotary car park signs (being printed by Screens and Graphics in Cottenham) bearing the “Rotary Wheel”.
This may also benefit Cambridge traders by providing them with more, less-rushed shoppers with more money to spend! More information, including a map, may be available at http://www.cambridge-southrotary.org.uk
More volunteers are needed to help for slots of 2.5 hours (over 250 slots in all over 3 car parks over 15 days) - if you would like to help (with one or more slots) the car parking (full guidance given) please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also see the website if you would like to know more about Rotary - whose motto is “Service above Self”. An International project is the elimination of Polio world -wide. Our club meets on Mondays (except bank holidays) at 5.45 for 6.15 at Westminster College with some great speakers. New members are very welcome.
As well as fundraising for other charities, we run, among many other things, a monthly memory café, an annual football tournament for the homeless, Peace events for 6th formers at 6-7 schools and support a school for Maasai children in Tanzania.
We wish you all a happy, relaxed and an especially Peaceful Christmas.
Mike Smith, Rotary Club of Cambridge South
