Ro­tary Round-up

Midweek Visiter - - Rotary Round-up -

MEM­BERS of the Ro­tary Club of South­port Links were out at Tesco Kew col­lect­ing on be­half of BBC Chil­dren in Need.

Once again, Tesco’s cus­tomers were ex­ceed­ingly gen­er­ous, with the to­tal amount do­nated over the Fri­day and Satur­day of CIN week­end beat­ing all pre­vi­ous years – to­talling over £3,100.

This year Pud­sey took some time out to visit Hes­keth Park Lodge care home to bring a lit­tle Pud­sey cheer to their staff and res­i­dents.

The club would like to thank man­age­ment at Tesco for sup­port­ing Chil­dren and Need and mas­sive thanks to Tesco’s cus­tomers who do­nated a record amount in such try­ing times.

South­port Ro­tary Club were at Birk­dale Christ­mas Fayre on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6.

Thanks go to South­port Ro­tary Club from Sam at Birk­dale Cheese Shop who is the or­gan­iser of the event.

It was a bril­liant night with rides, food and great en­ter­tain­ment, and de­spite the aw­ful weather peo­ple turned out for a great time be­tween 4 and 7pm.

South­port Ro­tary man­aged to bring Fa­ther Christ­mas to the vil­lage and as al­ways he was a star at­trac­tion with the chil­dren and chil­dren at heart.

He can be seen with two of his ad­mir­ers.

Col­lec­tions of food, toys and cho­co­late have been bagged up and dis­trib­uted by South­port Ro­tary Club to lo­cal char­i­ties for fam­i­lies at Christ­mas.

Our thanks go to Sharon at Asda and her team for their help and sup­port at this busy time, and also Mor­risons and their cus­tomers for their gen­eros­ity over the last year.

See you all on De­cem­ber 21 and De­cem­ber 22. The Satur­day will see a host of tal­ented per­form­ers with South­port Ro­tary Club mem­bers bring­ing Christ­mas cheer to shop­pers.

The lo­cal Ro­tary Clubs are very busy with Christ­mas col­lec­tions to help the lo­cal com­mu­nity have a bet­ter Christ­mas.

We all wish our read­ers a very Happy Christ­mas and a very Happy New Year.
