At a well attended and busy meeting thursday last the Club gave away its takings from a very busy 2018 Christmas period - over £11,500 was collected and £2000 was given to each of the four main charities - Little Havens Hospice, Treetops School, Barnardos and Great Ormond Street Hospital while thank you cheques were given to our helper groups from Thurrock Air Cadets, Thurrock Sea Cadets and Thurrock Cubs while praise and certificates were heaped on our Supermarket friends from Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda without whom we could not achieve the figures we do. President Mark paid tribute to all those who had given up so much time to come together and make the superlative effort that was required to raise £11,500 and there is a bit left over in the pot to help others in need of our help throughout the rest of this year.
