Update from the Bexley Rotary Club
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Once again Bexley Rotary Club must thank the communities of Bexley, Welling and Bexleyheath for donating so generously during our annual 12 nights of carol float door to door collections. The Club has run the event annually since the 1950's and it has become a well known precursor to Christmas for local children and their parents who eagerly await the arrival of Santa Claus at their front door.
Santa has been helped this year by young volunteers from local Scouts and Air Cadets plus Bourne Road Garage and the Rotarians.
A whopping £13,300 was raised beating our previous record by £1,000. The money is used to support individual, small local volunteer groups plus McMillan Nurses, Demelza Childrens Hospice, British Heart Foundation, Parkinsons UK, Kidney Research, Greenwich & Bexley Hospice etc to name a few.
Bexley Rotary Club thank the public without whom this would not be possible.
Brian Ward, Bexley Rotary Club.
