Fundraising competition raises over £1,000

OUR president Alan Furness and members of Whitley Bay Rotary Club would like to thank the public for their support during our ‘Santa in the Mall’ event.

Judging the children’s competition was difficult with so many colourful entries. The winner was Elizabeth Smith, from North Shields.

The prize was a family ticket to see Dick Whittington at the Playhouse, kindly donated by the Whitley Bay Pantomime Society.

We are especially grateful to the owners and staff of Park View shopping mall for allowing us to stage this fundraising event.

We collected £1,358.28, and this has enabled us to donate to Tiny Lives, St Oswald’s Children and Young People’s Hospice and Teenage Cancer.

Thank you all again for your generosity in difficult times.
