A TOP Rotary fundraiser stopped by in the Fens this week.
David Fowler, President of Rotary International in Britain and Ireland, visited Whittlesey to see what local people are doing to raise money for charity.
He also got the chance to join in the area's Woodland Tree Planting Project by planting his own tree.
Mr Fowler currently spearheads a national campaign to recruit more members and volunteers.
He said: "Meeting Rotary club members and seeing the hard work everyone puts into these projects is a privilege. Rotary is all about family and having fun.
"The projects I have seen bring everyone together to help others in the community and across the world, whilst having fun and excitement at the same time."
