ON behalf of club members, I would like, albeit belatedly, to express the thanks and appreciation of Melcombe Regis Rotary Club to all local residents, friends and visitors who kindly supported them so generously during their annual Christmas Collections together with our events throughout the past year.

The Club would also like to extend a big “thank you” to all the staff and management of Asda and Morrisons for their unstinting assistance in facilitating these. As is customary all the money donated will all be used in the support of local charities as needed throughout the forthcoming year.

We are very pleased to report that amongst these are, Compass School and The Horse Course, respectively, the two chosen local charities of the above stores, which we are extremely happy to include amongst our beneficiaries.
