Rotary club’s reindeer appeal raises £4,375 for Motor Neurone Disease
The Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers’ latest reindeer appeal raised £5,780 with £4,375 going to the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association and £1,405 to local Rotary supported charities.
Club members worked throughout the Autumn, making over 400 wooded reindeer and other animals to sell in various outlets around the Scarborough area.
Rotary president Tony Graham said: “The project has been led for the past two years by a club member, who has sadly been diagnosed with the disease.
“This year more club members have been involved in carrying the project forward but a special thanks must go to all the local outlets that have sold the wooden animals.”
Jenn Dodd, regional fundraiser for the MND Association attended the Rotary Club’s latest meeting at the Downe Arms to give a short introduction into the association’s work and to receive the cheque.
