Hitchin Round Table would like to give a big thanks to all those who contributed donations and time to make the annual Christmas collection a great success.

Mike Skeels, chairman, said that this year we raised £4,200 which will all go to the local good causes. We carried out our annual parcel delivery on Sunday 17 to which the lion's share of the money goes.

As we are only13 members we are finding it more difficult each year to fulfil all of the routes, so particular thanks go to Hitchin 41 Club and the Hitchin, Priory and Tilehouse Rotaries for providing the essential manpower.

Of course every collection needed Santa's sleigh. Many, many thanks to Weston's of Hitchin for kindly providing us with a tow for each and every evening. It is one of our most successful years. Come and join in next year!
