THE Rotary Club of Kinross and District recently handed over a three-figure cheque to a community club to thank them for their help.

Kinross Otters, a community club with a competitive edge, were given a cheque for £425 by the Rotary Club.

The Rotary club carry out annual fundraising on behalf of Santa and travel around Kinrosss-Shire collecting donations on their magnificent sleigh, renovated by members at Kinross Men’s Shed.

Each time they are accompanied by a local community group who help Santa bring joy and get a share of the donations for their club. 

Despite the horrendous weather this year, Otters had a great time at this rewarding activity – the excitement seen in the children’s faces more than making up for being footsore and freezing.  

We recently welcomed representatives from the Rotary Club of Kinross and District to a training session where they kindly donated a cheque in return for the hard work of our volunteers.

More than £4,200 was raised over the eight evenings and every club or organisation who help, receive some of the proceeds for each of their community groups, a great community project that the Rotary Club are thrilled to be part of.
