Rotary’s collection success

CHATTERIS Rotary Club wants thank all residents who contributed to the charity collections which took place on evenings in December when the illuminated ‘Father Christmas’ float toured the streets.

This year the efforts of Rotarians benefited from relatively mild weather and were well rewarded by the residents of Chatteris who generously donated an aggregate sum over £2,400 from the evening collections.

Members also thank the generous customers of the Co-operative Store at Bridge Street who donated to the charity collection on December 24.

The collection continued from 9.30am to 4.30pm when just over £900 was donated.

These two amounts will be applied to a variety of charities, many of them local to Chatteris, by the club during 2012.
