Thanks for Christmas cash

Rushden Round Table would like to thank people for their generosity at Christmas.

The organisation’s Christmas collections raised more than £6,000 after 17 nights of collections in Rushden, Higham Ferrers, Stanwick and Wymington.

The Rushden group’s president Nick Darlow said: “In what continues to be a difficult time for many people, it is fantastic to be able to raise so much money from donations for local causes. We’d also like to thank everyone who came out and helped us each night, the Rolton Group for their support and for the use of their 4x4 to pull the sleigh.”

The local causes that will receive donations from the money raised include Child Contact, Higham Colts FC, Higham Rotary, AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Mind.
