Very many thanks go to to all 23 volunteers who participated in the collection and particularly to Andrew Clarkson and Ron Went who both performed sterling service as Santa.
We had a total of 25 members, friends and wives working in teams throughout the day, comprising Santa with a handful of his snowmen helpers, who distributed the contents of 18 tins of Celebrations and Quality Street to Sainsbury's customers. This gesture seems to have been well received and, no doubt, added to the fun of the occasion.
This also means that, over the eight years the Rotary Club of Ingatestone has been carrying out its Christmas supermarket collections for Macmillan, the club has managed to donate to them a total of £18,209.
Well done to everyone.
With acknowledgments to Ron Elliston for his involvment; Ron still had time to take a few photographs, which give a small taste of us of in action at Sainsbury's.
