Rotarians brave cold for good of the community
SUB-zero temperatures failed to stop Rotarians venturing out into the cold to do good for their community.
The newspaper collection on Saturday (February 11) by March Rotary Club still went ahead despite it being -11c, the coldest day of the winter so far.
“Rotarians, from the President down, turned out in numbers to collect the newspapers donated by members of the public,” spokesman Robert Freeman said.
The volunteers picked up papers in City Road car park so they could be recycled into equine animal bedding.
Money raised from their efforts will go into the community through Rotary Kids Out, where underprivileged children are taken on a suitable adventure to learn new social skills to assist their teenage development.

“To make this viable, the volume of newspapers needs to increase to meet the escalating costs and legal requirements,” Mr Freeman said.
“We therefore request members of the public to donate their newspapers to our collection point every second Saturday in City Road car park, March.”
