, Macmillan Cancer Support entered a team in our 2018 Rotary
Dragon Boat Challenge. They raised the most commendable amount of £1819.85 in personal sponsorship. They also qualified for the Ladies Final, and came an equally commendable 2nd in a time of 79.2 secs.

In addition, they were nominated by Huddersfield Rotary Club as a principal beneficiary for the year, as a result of which, two of their organisation were guests at our Club Meeting on Monday 11th February 2019, when they received a cheque for £2000.00 which they pledged to spend on the care of cancer patients in the Huddersfield/Holmfirth area.

The picture shows members of Huddersfield Rotary Club, and Stacey Rhodes, – fundraiser in the area – and Heather Wheatley, vice chair of Holmfirth Branch at the cheque presentation.

Stacey said. ” I would like to thank Huddersfield Rotary Club for giving us the opportunity to enter your Dragon Boat Race, and to experience the day, which was just amazing. This generous cheque, added to the sponsorship money we raised, will make a huge difference to the help we can give cancer patients in this area. Thank you so much”
