Thanks to the efforts of The Rotary Club of Fareham, £3,100 has been raised for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance service.

The bulk of the money was raised over three days of Christmas collections outside Sainsbury’s in Broadcut.

A spokesman for the club said: ‘I have done these Christmas collections in Fareham now for 46 years for Rotary charities and I am always amazed at the generosity of the good folk in this area.’
