Christmas comes early for local charities
Rotary club celebrates another busy year of fund-raising.
CHRISTMAS arrived early for four of North Devon’s deserving local charities thanks to a helping hand from Bideford Bridge Rotary Club.
Northam Lodge, North Devon Hospice, The Harbour Project and Children’s Hospice South West each received a share of �7,500, money raised after another busy year of fund-raising.
President Andrew Laugharne, who presented the cheques at the club’s December meeting, said events had ranged from a darts marathon to a cycling sportif and a triathlon.
He said the club hoped to raise even more in 2013 and continue its support and good work in the local community.
