On behalf of Rotary in Frome the Frome Town Mayor, Richard Ackroyd, presented cheques to four organisations that helped with collections at the Frome Fireworks.
The public donated £5,100 to deserving causes in Frome and the first money has been distributed to Fair Frome £500, The Pod £750, The 1st and 7th Frome Scouts £750 and The Frome Big Christmas get together £250. All of these organisations helped with the collection on the night.
The Fireworks were funded by Frome Town Council through the Peoples Budget and organised by the three Rotary Clubs in Frome.
“We were delighted that other organisations supported the Fireworks and thanks to the generosity of the people of Frome we are able to support their causes. We know that the Carnival Club also benefited from the sale of illuminated toys at the event and the Cricket club and football club were able to generate additional funds.
We are hope full that, with the support of Frome Town Council, we can make these an annual event” said Andrew Lee President of Frome Town Rotary

Having heard about the work of Fair Frome when Bob Ashford, Chair of the trustees, attended one of their meetings, Frome Town Rotary decided to forego their Christmas meal and donate instead to Fair Frome.
Their members were provided with a shopping list by Fair Frome and visited ASDA in their Christmas Jumpers and hats to donate at least the equivalent cost of their Christmas meal in food.
“It is a small thing we are doing but we know that through the excellent work of Fair Frome that the food will go to families who need and appreciate something extra at Christmas” said Andrew Lee President of Frome Town Rotary.
