The Rotary Club of York Ainsty held a recent bag packing day at Sainsburys, Foss Bank in support of York Hospital's Star Appeal and raised a fantastic £500.
Jim Murison, a member of the Rotary club said, "Following a letter received from the STAR appeal, the Rotary Club of York Ainsty felt that this was an appropriate local charity to support, showing Rotary working for the local community. We also support a number of other local groups, as well as larger national projects such as polio eradication and disaster relief. Rotary is also keen to hear from anyone interested in finding out more about our work in York (website: www.rcya.org.uk) We also wish to acknowledge the support and help of Sainsbury's, Foss Bank for allowing Rotary to raise funds for the STAR appeal in the supermarket.
Lucy Watson, Fundraising Manager for the York Teaching Hospital Charity said, "We are so grateful for the fantastic local support we have received for the Star Appeal. We would like to thank the Rotary club for raising £480 at their bag packing day and thank everyone who showed their support by making a donation."
