Club raises £850 during collections outside Tesco store for vcitims of the earthquake and Tsunami

Generous shoppers helped Chard Rotary Club raise £850 for the victims of the recent earthquake and Tsunami in Indonesia.

Members were given permission to collect money from members of the public outside the town’s Tesco supermarket on Saturday, October 6.

Club President Mike Trott and his team have thanked people for supporting the appeal.

The money has been forwarded to Rotary’s Water Survival Box charity which is providing water purification equipment to people in the affected area.

“We were fortunate to have £500 of this donation match funded by the ‘Big Give’ increasing the total amount donated to £1,350,” said a spokesman for the Rotary Club.

* Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, part of Rotary International, has 1,800 clubs and more than 51,000 members.

Rotary clubs are open to men and women of all ages who are business, professional or community leaders and who want to use their experience for the benefit of others.
