Barn-storming total of £3,000 raised by Westcliff Rotary

05 February 2016

Fundraising

An amazing £3,000 cheque has been handed over to Southend Hospital’s Charity by the Westcliff Rotary Club.

The cheque was from last year's mega-successful 'Boogie at the Barn 2' event, which was organised in conjunction with Graham Moorcroft, director of Tropicana Nights & Funky Floors Ltd. 

The money, which will benefit the Keyhole Cancer Appeal, was presented to the Hospital Charity events & corporate relations manager, Elise Fleetwood, by Rotary Club members Richard Tremaine, joint president, Howard Ife, senior vice president and members Geoffrey Brennan and Alan Samuels.

Elise said: "We're massively grateful to Graham and all the involved members of the club for making this event a real success, it really went down a storm which is fitting given the challenging weather conditions they had to work against. It didn't dampen spirits though and this cheque has certainly helped raise ours."

Richard Tremaine, joint president, said: "Westcliff Rotary Club were extremely proud to present a cheque of £3000 for the Keyhole Cancer Appeal at Southend Hospital. This was raised at our annual charity music festival 'Soundfield'.  This year 'Soundfield' will be held at Garons Park on the weekend of 3rd and 4th June to continue raising charitable funds for the hospital and local community."
