Children in Need Collection at Booths

Rotary Club of Lunesdale with Booths support Children In Need.

Members of the Rotary Club of Lunesdale were pleased and proud to join with Booths store in Kirkby Lonsdale to support the annual nationwide appeal for the charity Children In Need. During the week, prior to the  national appeal on Friday, Alison Avery and Katy Parker organised with their store colleagues to bake cakes at home and to hold a cake sale within the store. This was a great success and raised £500. In addition, within the store on CIN day, over £500 was raised at the cash-outs within the store. Meanwhile outside the store for the whole day, members of the Rotary Club greeted customers where lots of light hearted banter was exchanged and enjoyed. The collection buckets became progressively heavier and by the end of the day the Rotary Club members collected £1,006. Between the store and the Rotary Club a total in excess of £2,000 was raised which was a truly magnificent effort due to the generosity of Booths customers at Kirkby Lonsdale. On behalf of the staff at Booths, members of the Rotary Club of Lunesdale, but above all from the children who will benefit, may we say a huge thank you to all those generous people who donated  to this very worthy charity.
