The latest award is the North East District Rotary Clubs Community Award which Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club won for the excellent fundraising event at Yarm School Alexandra Auditorium in February where James Dale and his group Sweet baby James performed songs from Carol King and James Taylor. Over £11,000 was raised for Prostate Cancer Robot assisted surgery.
The money will be used for consultant training and to further extend the use of Prostate Cancer Robotic Surgery at James Cook University Hospital. Not only a great fundraiser for the local organisation, but also a great social event.
Total fundraising for the year was in excess of £20,000.
