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.
