Garden centre delivers early Christmas present
CHRISTMAS came early – or late – for the Rotary Club of Royston when they received a cheque from a garden centre.
Phil Hammer, general manager at Country Homes and Gardens, handed over a cheque for nearly �900 to Rotary President David Izod this week, above, for the support that the club gave to Santa’s Grotto last Christmas.
As reported in The Crow, members of the club gave up their time to man the grotto for several weekends in the run-up to Christmas last year.
Mr Izod said the club was “delighted” to work with the company over the Christmas period.
He said: “We brought great joy to children and parents within the community and it supported Rotary in carrying out its many activities throughout the year, such as the Polio Plus campaign.
