Records broken at Battersea Park Fireworks

Wandsworth Council reports a crowd of over 40000 at Battersea Park - breaking a record for attendance, so it's no surprise that the Wandsworth Group of Rotary Clubs, which includes Putney Rotary Club, raised their biggest ever amount at the event... £3211.00

The funds raised will be donated to Help for Heroes and the Rainbow School for Autistic children - in equal measure.

Thank you to all those who assisted us with the collection.

Notes to Editors

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Members carry out this work in their community and/or overseas by giving their time and their expertise.

A Rotary Club is open to men and women who are business, professional or community leaders who want to use their experience for the benefit of others. Paul Harris formed the world's first service club in Chicago on 23rd February 1905. The name Rotary is derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members' offices.
