WHITCHURCH Rotary Club has ensured that despite the 'trials and tribulations' of Covid, community groups in and around Whitchurch continue to be financially supported.

The club recently held their charity presentation evening, the first such event held since 2019.

Thanks to fundraising by the Rotary Club, members were able to donate £7,000 to various groups, including Lingen Davies Appeal, Hope House, Hospice at Home, Seven Hospice,Air Ambulance, Brownlow Community Centre, Bradbury Day Centre, Blood Bikes, Classroom in The Gambia and Time Together, with the cheques being presented by club president Ian Fawcett.

Club member Peggy Mullock said she was delighted to see the donations made.

She said: "Last Wednesday Whitchurch Rotary Club held their presentation evening at Whitchurch Rugby Club.

"This was the first in two years as last year we were locked down with Covid and the club decided to use funds to help out where it was needed in the Whitchurch community.

"Delighted that even after all the trials and tribulations of the past 12 months we've been able to donate a total of £7,000 to charities and good causes this year."
