Otter Valley Rotary donates over £3,000 to local charities and organisations over Christmas.

Throughout December, donations came pouring into the Otter Valley Rotary Christmas Collection at Tesco in Honiton, Sainsbury's in Ottery and McColls in West Hill. Santa made a guest appearance handing out presents for every child at Millwater SEN school at Bicton, and gifts were provided for children at the Cranbrook Festival.

Honiton based charity Parental Minds, which supports families who are struggling with their mental health, received £1,000. Honiton Food Bank were given a donation of £250 for their much-used service, and nine ladies at the local women's refuge received gifts this year. Much-needed funds were also given to the Cranbrook mother and toddler group. 

You can apply for funds for your group, charity or school by sending an application to the Club Secretary via the Otter Valley Rotary website contact page:
