GENEROUS regulars have helped African children get an education.
Drinkers at The Bull in Gosmore dug deep on Saturday night at a charity auction at the pub to help pupils at the Ntabankulu Primary School in South Africa.
Organised by The Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse, lots such as a light aircraft flight and luxury facial raised over �2,000 - money that will go towards building new classrooms at the school.
"It's a fantastic sum," said Rotary chair Alan Doggett, "it's a huge step towards our target of �5,000 and I'd like to thank those that donated the prizes and the bidders for their generosity. A special thanks also goes to Kim and Charlie, landlady and landlord of The Bull, for their help and support in making the event such a success."
