The fruits of Hilgay’s raft races in August were reaped with large cheques handed over to two charities.
Sponsorship and money raised on the variety of stalls at the event was able to help the charities, Nelson’s Journey, helping bereaved children and Sue Ryder, which works with the disabled and infirmed.
Both charities received £1,340 at a meeting of Downham’s Rotary Club recently.
