The Rotary Clubs of Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth joined forces to help those families caught up in the recent devastating floods in Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire the Scottish Borders and Royal Deeside.

This was planned by the presidents of the clubs shortly after New Year.

Collection points were set up at the Sainsburys store in Matlock and the Co-op stores in Bakewell and Wirskworth.

Rotarians from all clubs helped to man the stands on January 17,and through their efforts and the generous public at large raised a fabulous total of £1,500.
