Thanks Swindon Rotary! 

22,000 handed out after a night of fundraising at the Marriott
For the 26th year in a row, the Charity Ball organised by the Rotary Club of Swindon has made a tremendous difference to seven local good causes.
At a cheque presentation this evening on the patio at the Marriott Hotel, over 22,000 was handed out to charities that couldn't thank Rotary - and all that have supported them - enough for their generosity.
All the money pledged was a result of their annual big gala dinner in May, which since 1989 has raised nearly 700,000 (see links below).
Beneficiaries this year included:
Friends of Twigs
Swindon Hydrotherapy Pool
Swindon Advocacy
Swindon Asthma Relief
DASH - Discovering Autistic Spectrum Happiness
Swindon Interactive Arts
Swindon Foodbank
