Ponteland Rotary Club Christmas Events

The Toy Collection again produced an excellent return of good quality toys that were distributed to Ponteland Primary Care Centre, St Cuthbert's Care, Barnardo's, National Chidren's Homes, Children North East and others to benefit over 2300 children in the area.

In spite of the very inclement weather the Annual Carol Concert proved very successful, as a result presentations were made to Children North East £300 and to Bedlington Salvation Army £250.

The collection for Save the Children Fund raised a very satisfactory £1247 (the best to date) again in difficult weather conditions. The Club would like to thank all those who gave generously and also to thank Waitrose and Dobbies who gave permission for collections to be made on their premises.

The Rotary Club would like to thank all who supported the Club's fund-raising efforts throughout the past year.
