Ain't no mountain high enough for awesome Alessandro Tali Iserles tali@spottedinely.com

Eight-year-old Alessandro Rolfe is on a mission: to conquer Mount Snowdon this month. He may live in the flattest part of the country, honing his skills at Clip ‘n’ Climb in Cambridge – but Alessandro’s determined to complete his epic ascend to raise money for seriously sick children. The Ely boy’s been fundraising for children’s causes each year since he was four – and this time, he’s chosen Welsh charity Tŷ Hafan, which offers palliative care for terminally ill kids and their families. Alessandro told Spotted in Ely: “I wanted to raise money for poorly children and their families.” On May 31 he and his dad, Chris Rolfe, plan to climb Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above sea level. Alessandro’s mum, Emanuella, and sister Flavia, two, will catch the Snowdon Mountain Railway, joining the others at the summit for a well earned treat. Alessandro said: “I’m looking forward to the cafe at the top.” A year three student at The Lantern School, he hopes to raise at least £250 for Tŷ Hafan. £57 pays for two hours of physiotherapy to ease the pain children and young people experience as a result of their conditions.

£184 pays for a specially trained nurse to care for a child at the hospice throughout the night, allowing parents to get a good night’s sleep. Chris said: “Alessandro tries and does a sponsored event each year to raise money for a children’s charity. Other years he has done cycle rides and walks to raise money for EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) and also the Teenage Cancer Trust”. In 2015, at the age of just five, Alessandro fundraised for Tŷ Hafan, walking up Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons – the highest peak in South Wales, rising to 886m above sea level. Alessandro said: “I have always wanted to go up Snowdon and as we are there on a holiday, I thought it would be good to do something for Tŷ Hafan again.” You can sponsor Alessandro here. http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chris-rolfe4

Lancaster Way Bike Share Scheme The summer is finally here and to celebrate Grovemere Property have launched their brand new Bike Share Scheme for companies on Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely in partnership with Ison Distribution. All the companies based on Lancaster Way Business Park will be given the opportunity to join the Scheme and the idea of the Scheme is to reduce vehicle movements on Lancaster Way and to encourage a more healthy work environment. Nicola Tuck, Director at Grovemere explains “Employees on the Business Park will be able to borrow a bike to travel to work, travel to meetings or go out on their lunch break just to get a bit of exercise.” Ison Distribution located on Lancaster Way have supplied Grovemere with 5 Cambridge Light Blue Bikes and Lloyd Townsend the MD worked closely with Nicola to help choose the most suitable bikes. Lloyd explains “Our 4th generation family owned business has been serving cyclists in Cambridge since 1895. My great grandfather started by making and selling his own brand of The Light Blue bicycles up until the 1920s. The company evolved within the bicycle industry over the generations to a point 10 years ago where we were able to reintroduce the brand to meet the demand for a simple to use, lightweight, quality City type bike. Townsends Light Blue Cycle Centre on Chesterton Road remains as our retail unit in Cambridge, however, 9 years ago we decided to move our main distribution HQ to Lancaster Way Business Park. We have remained immensely pleased with the friendly and helpful attitude of Grovemere and we’ve experienced Grovemere investing in such benefits as High-Speed broadband, 24-hour security, as well as keeping the whole estate looking tip-top for all of the occupants. When Nicola mentioned to us that they wanted to add a Bike Share scheme as another benefit for all of their occupants – we were of course very happy to become involved. We felt that our Light Blue Parkside 3-speed model with a natural wicker basket for easy cargo carrying capacity and a low-step through frame would be just as ideal around the Ely City area as it’s proven to be in its natural home of Cambridge. As a local business, we are pleased to be able to offer long term support to yet another one of Grovemere’s pioneering ideas for building a better environment for business in the area.”

Don't miss magical production of The Tempest at King's Ely's Old Palace Spellbinding Shakespeare play The Tempest is being staged at King’s Ely in June.

them on the island. After being left to plot his revenge for years he finally has the chance to exact it. But will he?

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are bringing the hugely popular open-air production to the picturesque gardens of King’s Ely’s Old Palace on the evening of Wednesday, June 6th – and tickets are selling fast!

Artistic Director, Peter Stickney, said: “With some of Shakespeare’s most memorable speeches and packed with famous characters – from the elemental and ethereal Caliban and Ariel to the comic clowns Trinculo and Stephano and the enchanting force that unites them all, Prospero – The Tempest is a spectacular play and will make fantastic viewing for a summer’s evening. A truly theatrical play like this, set outdoors and in our trademark style bursting with song and magic makes for an evening not to be missed!”

A play of soaring poetry, high comedy and tender love, and widely believed to be the last full play that Shakespeare wrote alone, The Tempest examines the power of true love, our capacity for vengeance and what it takes to forgive. A play that has mesmerised and moved audiences for over 400 years is just as relevant and powerful today. Prospero, the usurped Duke of Milan, and his daughter, Miranda, after being cast out from their home, are washed up on a distant, mystical island. 12 years later his enemies are blown off course towards them. Using his powers of magic, he raises a tempest to shipwreck

Page 8

Founded in 2004, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are the modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original company of the same name. Performing with an all-male cast, they present authentic and magical productions of Shakespeare’s finest plays bringing to vivid and accessible life the greatest works of drama, as

they would first have been performed. Peter Stickney took over the company as Artistic Director and Chief Executive in 2016. The show is being premiered at the prestigious Brighton Festival, before heading off on a tour around the UK that takes in the most significant and visually stunning castles, cathedrals and stately homes, finishing their tour in mainland Europe in September. With audiences encouraged to bring picnics, a chair or a blanket, and a glass of something chilled, this show promises to be another authentic, excellent and magical treat from the company that brought you last year’s riotous farce, The Comedy of Errors. The production starts at 7.30pm, although gates open at 6.30pm to allow people to set up their picnics etc. Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for children. To book your tickets, please call (01353) 653931 or visit www. kingsely.org/boxoffice.

Selfless sisters go for the chop to help kids with cancer

Tali Iserles tali@spottedinely.com

Selfless sisters Izzy and Poppy Kisby have proved they’re as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside by having their luscious locks bobbed to help kids with cancer.

As well as donating the hair for wigs, the family is collecting sponsorship for the charity, as well as giving a percentage of money to The Rackham C of E Primary School, where Izzy is a pupil, and the pre-school, which Poppy attends.

The Witchford sisters, aged eight and four, braved the chop at Fresh Approach Hairdressers on Saturday.

They’ve set up a crowd funding page, with almost half of their £500 goal already raised, and set up collection boxes at the school, preschool and the village post office.

The hair has been donated to Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young people who’ve lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Estelle said: “I would just like to say a big thank you to Steve at Witchford’s Fresh Approach Hairdressers who cut the girls’ hair for free for the charity.

Mum Estelle Kisby told Spotted in Ely she was “so proud of them both”. Izzy and Poppy decided to donate their hair to charity after reading about another little girl who’d undergone a similar act of kindness.

“He did a super job and the girls are really pleased with their new bobbed hairstyles.” You can leave a donation for Izzy and Poppy at www. justgiving.com/fundraising/Estelle-kisby

From Emma #ShoutOutSunday I feel compelled to share the most moving story of compassion, from Friday: My mother has just recounted to me how she was stuck in stationary traffic en route to Ely this morning, on the A142 Stuntney Bypass, at around 10am. Near the top of the hill, an adult and a juvenile badger had very sadly been knocked down and killed within a couple of metres of each other, and only a day or so after another adult had been hit, a little further down the hill. The queueing traffic had been at a standstill for a few minutes when a lady, two cars in front of her, suddenly got out of her car, and lifted the heavy adult badger’s body from the road, carrying it to a ditch beyond the grass verge, and carefully laying it down. She then returned for the baby, and thoughtfully lay its body next to the adult, before wiping her hands on the grass, and returning to her car. The cars edged forward a few metres. A second woman, in the car directly in front of my mum, emerged from her car with a tub of wet wipes, and walked up to the first lady’s car to offer them to her, passing them through the window, before returning to her vehicle. The traffic moved a bit closer to Ely. The first lady then reemerged from her car to return the tub of wipes to the second lady. I take several things from this tale. I was very upset to know that, apparently, a family of badgers had been hit and killed by passing traffic. I had passed them myself, a little earlier this morning, although I was travelling in free-flowing traffic and, as much as I would have liked to have stopped to move them from the road, it would not have been safe to do so. Noting that the two adjacent bodies were no longer in the road as I headed home an hour or so later, I was relieved to think that someone else had thoughtfully stopped to remove them. Little did I realise I would later learn how this had happened! I would like to thank the first woman from the bottom of my heart for her compassion and respect she showed for these two beautiful creatures, preventing them from being coarsely flattened into the road surface. To the second lady, I also give my sincere thanks, as she showed great empathy and consideration for the first woman, after witnessing her removing the bodies. If you know either of these two women, please thank them for being such exemplary humans! It costs nothing to show compassion for another being - human or animal - and can make the world of difference not only to that individual but also to others.
