Once again, Hadleigh Rotarians, their friends and Father Christmas, accompanied by his trusty float, were out and about in Hadleigh over the Christmas period visiting as many children as possible, as well as collecting money for local charities.

Although the weather was mixed, only one collection was cancelled due to heavy rain and a big thank you goes to all the helpers for a great effort.

The house-to-house collections raised £956.22, while collections in Morrisons’ car park produced £490.64 and, in the High Street, £252 – making a grand total of £1,698.86.

A big thankyou must go to the people of Hadleigh for their tremendous generosity.

The funds will be distributed mainly among the following local charities; Shelley Centre for Therapeutic Riding, Homestart Babergh, Hadleigh Elderly People’s Welfare Committee, The Porch Project and Sue Ryder Synergy Cafe.
