THANK you to the people of Woolston, Netley Abbey, Bursledon, Hamble and other nearby parishes, who helped raise a total of £3,974.00 during our Christmas collections – a really fantastic amount and all will be used to fund local charities and organisations.

The Rotary Club of Southampton East would also like to thank the many collectors who assisted members, even when the weather was less than helpful.

Many people commented on our very tuneful and Christmassy trailer, which lifted the spirits, despite the weather.
