Helpers thanked for float support

VOLUNTEERS have been thanked for their help with a favourite fundraiser for Bognor Regis.

 

The 60 or so people who gave their time to Bognor Hotham Rotary Club were invited to a special evening in recognition of their unpaid efforts.

 

They enjoyed an excellent meal at the town’s golf club followed by a fast-moving juggling act by international stage and street performer Dan Hall.

 

Rotary club press officer Brian Clarke said: “Dan managed to keep his audience spellbound for 45 minutes with his continuous quick wit while juggling everything from balls, hats, a yo-yo, and even a melon and a pineapple.

 

“The evening was rounded off with a raffle and wide range of excellent prizes.”

 

The volunteers had helped the club bring the spirit of Christmas to streets around the Bognor Regis area with its annual Santa illuminated float.

 

The well-established Christmas tradition raised what Mr Clarke described as an amazing £11,584 last December. All the money will be used to help those in need and worthy causes around the town.

 

“The ‘thank you’ evening is paid for by club members and out of club funds,” said Mr Clarke.

 

“It is Bognor Hotham Rotary Club’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to all those who helped with the float collections during December.”

 

He added the club would always consider requests from worthy causes and those who needed help.

 

Requests should be made in the first instance to the club through its website – bognorhotham.rotaryweb.org – or Facebook pages.
