Ro­tary Round-up

Midweek Visiter - - Rotary Round-up -

SOUTH­PORT Ro­tary Club com­mu­nity cer­vice mem­bers joined the team of mar­shals to sup­port the South­port Sea­side 10k run on Sun­day, Septem­ber 24.

A huge num­ber of peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties joined the run to raise money for charity.

Fundraiser for The Gal­loway So­ci­ety for the Blind Roya Arm­strong had given a talk to the Ro­tary Club of South­port ear­lier in the year.

Club mem­bers wished to sup­port the charity with any of its needs.

They first mar­shalled their Colour Blast run ear­lier in the year, and again were in­vited to join the helpers to mar­shal the 10k run when Gal­loways was a Nat­ter­jack charity part­ner.
