FUNDRAIS­ERS across the county have raised more than £2,000 for the Help for He­roes char­ity.

Rock ‘n’ roll club Rock House 58 raised £1,000 for ser­vice­men and women.

As well as learn­ing to jig and jive, fun-lov­ing Yax­ley res­i­dents who form part of the club, have been rais­ing funds for the char­ity, which pro­vides sup­port to ser­vice­men and women and their fam­i­lies.

The money was raised through a se­ries of events in­clud­ing a per­for­mance at Ser­pen­tine Green Shop­ping Cen­tre in Hampton, which raised £450. The club meet on Mon­days at the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion Club in Broad­way, Yax­ley, from 7.30pm to 11pm.

Staff at An­gel Spice in Stil­ton raised £1,060 for Help for He­roes dur­ing an an­nual char­ity curry evening, and cus­tomers of the Rain­bow Food­store, in Bent­ley Av­enue, are be­ing en­cour­aged to help raise money for the Stret­ton Pre-School, lo­cated next door to the store.

The Rain­bow’s ‘Pick up a Penny’ cam­paign fo­cuses on the lo­cal com­mu­nity and in­vites cus­tomers to help raise the money, by putting their till re­ceipts in a col­lec­tion box. For ev­ery re­ceipt col­lected, one penny will be do­nated to the pre-school.

Trainee man­ager Gary Ea­gle said: “Pick up a Penny is such a sim­ple yet ef­fec­tive way for the store to get in­volved and help their lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
