Rotary Club of Henley Bridge

THE club held its annual Christmas carols dinner at Badgemore Park Golf Club on Wednesday, December 18.

The Henley Carol Singers gave a wonderful performance of carols old and new and encouraged members to join with well-known traditional ones.

The singers were raising money for the Samaritans of Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot and Districts.

The Samaritans receive more than five million calls a year as well as texts, emails and personal visits from those in the depths of despair. The service is available 24/7 and run entirely by volunteers.

A collection among Rotarians and friends at the dinner raised £300.

The club also took the opportunity of the dinner to present a cheque for £1,000 to Tony Hobbs for the RNLI.

The money was raised at the Henley half marathon of which the RNLI was one of the designated charities.
