Almost £19,000 was raised for Wiltshire charities from events put on by the Thamesdown Rotary Club.

Dressability, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Wiltshire Bobby Van, Swindon and North Wiltshire Deaf Children’s Society and CALM were all given a slice of the funds.

President of the club, Bob Humphries, expressed his thanks to all of those who helped the events including £4,250 raised at the Christmas Sleigh collections.
