A Rotary club president has been busy handing out donations to worthy causes.

Rotary Club of the Deepings leader Mary Martin joined two teenagers as they did a static cycle to raise money for a trip to Morocco.

Nick Lefley and James Baird-Parker wrote to the club to ask for help funding the trip, which they will make as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Mary joined them on the exercise bikes for their final two miles and agreed to donate towards the trip.

The club also chose to support The Guildford Rotary Eye Project, which helps people in India and Africa, following a talk by John Miles.

The charity was set up in 1998 by Guildford Rotarian and eye surgeon Sam Das with the aim of helping one million people.
