Rotary's Santa just keeps on giving

(From the Plymouth Herald February 25th 2015)

In the run-up to Christmas the team from Roborough Rotary Club and Roborough Inner Wheel Clubs spent their days collecting at Morrisons on Outland Road and ASDA at Estover, plus five evenings touring the north Plymouth area including Widewell, Fort Austin, Derriford and Manadon. Over �5,500 was raised for local charities.

On 25th February cheques were presenting to various causes at the Lord Mayor's Parlour

and representing Roborough Rotary Club Phil Chesters, President; Helen West, President Elect; Hugh Baker, President Nominee and Peter Norton, Treasurer

Phil Chesters, president of Roborough Rotary Club, said: "The cheques presented at the Lord Mayor's Parlour were just some of the donations we were able to make following our collection which, thanks to the generosity of the people of Plymouth raised over �5,500.

"All proceeds from the collection go towards local charities with particular emphasis on those providing help and support to children and young people."

Michael Wallis from Derriford Children's Cancer Service said: "I have to say Roborough Rotary Club picked an impressive lineup of charities all of which I know are working so hard making a difference to people's lives in our local community.

"It is all too often that local projects miss out to the larger high profile charities so it is wonderful to see an organisation like this supporting on a local level; we are sincerely thankful for their donation."
