A GREAT RESULT FOR THE ROTARY CLUB OF ROCHFORD CHRISTMAS COLLECTIONS

3rd January 2019  

The Rotary Club of Rochford enjoyed another excellent year for its 2018 Christmas collections, thanks to the continuing generosity of local people.

A total of £8,299.76 was collected in the streets of Ashingdon, Canewdon, Hawkwell, Hockley and Rochford and at static collections at Morrisons, Western Approaches, Tesco, Prince Avenue, The Factory Shop on Purdeys Industrial Estate and LIDL, Progress Road/Rayleigh Road.  We also had our Snowmen at Southend Airport assisting with their Santa flights and helped with the switch-on of the Christmas lights in Rochford Square.  The Club will be using the money raised to help many voluntary groups and good causes in the Rochford area.

Rotary President, Rotarian Alan Harvey O.B.E. said, “It’s great to be in our community at this time of year and raising money for good causes.  Once again, we had a fantastic response from the people in our area.  As always, the street collections proved very popular, with Santa on his sleigh with his Snowmen giving youngsters, and the not-so-young, an early taste of Christmas.  We are also very grateful to Morrisons, Tesco, The Factory Shop, LIDL and Southend Airport for allowing us to collect at their premises.  The money collected will now enable the Rotary Club to help so many who are less fortunate than ourselves in our local community”.


The Club meets every Monday at 12.45 at the Rochford Hundred Golf Club.
