2017 AGM  At the Ely Folk Festival AGM last night, Andy Wall the festival committee chair person handed over a cheque for £1200 to Mandy Crow from Branching Out. Branching Out is a local charity based in East Cambridgeshire that supports adults with learning disabilities in a variety of fun work experience and social activities and the donation will be used to create a social area for the people supported by the charity that can be used for relaxation, friendship building and improving health and fitness.  We were delighted to support this great local charity as part of the 2016 festival and are very grateful to the wonderful work undertaken by the morris teams who performed at the 2016 festival in collecting over £1000 of the donation as they danced their way through Ely city centre.
