Grays Rotary Club gave away a massive £10,720 as a result of their 2017 Christmas Campaign collecting money around the streets of Grays, Tilbury and Chadwell and the major Supermarkets. 
The beneficiaries were of course charities and organisations providing services to the children in the local area.
  • Little Havens Hospice
  • Great Ormond Street Hospital
  • Barnardos
  • Treetops School
all received big donations

Steve also gave thanks to the supermarkets Asda, Tesco and Sainsburys for letting us collect there in the first place and to the leaders and the youngsters of Thurrock Air Cadets, Thurrock Scouts and Thurrock Sea Cadets who helped us out so enthusiastically on the streets, all of whom received small donations from the club to further their goals and a big thank you to Orchard Garden Centre for doing all the coin counting - a huge task in the circumstances and of course a huge thanks to our Sleigh Captain Mr Mark Dvorkin for putting it all together.
