The president of the Rotary Club of Newhaven has thanked residents for their support.
Jacqueline Whiteley said shoppers were ‘amazingly’ generous with donations when the Rotary Club took part in a collection at the Sainsbury’s store in Newhaven.
She said: “We achieved our best ever collection total of £3,450.11 – a fantastic amount of money, which will enable us to continue our support for local organisations like the Newhaven scouts, and CTLA, as well as emergency relief for natural disasters in other parts of our world.
“Not to mention funding the OAPs’ Christmas party each year.
“Thanks to everyone concerned, especially Sainsbury’s for allowing us to take up valuable space in their foyer.”
