Bag packing fundraiser was a fine start to year in office

IN my first week as president of The Rotary Club of Monkseaton Centenary, I would like, through your columns, to thank the customers at Iceland in Park View shopping centre, Whitley Bay, for their generous support of our charity bag pack last weekend, which raised £322.

This result gave my year of office a flying start.

I would also like to thank the management and staff at Iceland for their usual help and co-operation that we are always extremely grateful for.

The amount raised last week will be supplemented by the club so that £500 will be donated to local charities.

Members of The Rotary Club of Monkseaton Centenary are immensely grateful for the incredibly positive responses to each appeal made in the present world of financial uncertainty and hardship.
