ROYSTON Rotary Club presented a group for deaf children with a cheque for �3,000 this week.

The cash, which was raised at this year's Royston Kite Festival, was given to Jane Shann, who leads the Phoenix Group for Deaf Children, based in Ashwell.

Rotary president David Izod said: "The town had a superb day, blessed with a perfect combination of sun, wind, good natured crowds, excellent kite flyers and the strong support of many charities and service groups.

"We all had fun and the result was help given to a lively, active local organisation providing a valued service to the community.
