The Retford Rotarians have donated £1,000 to Bassetlaw charity HOPE.

Sandy Smith from the charity said: “Of the 150 people who stayed in our emergency accommodation last year, 22 per cent originated from Retford.”

“The community often thinks of HOPE as being Worksop based and although our offices are here we work all across the district.”

“The generous donation from the Rotarians has allowed us to buy a commercial tumble dryer, which is going to help immensely, you can imagine what it’s like washing the bedding of 14 people two or three times a week.”

“We look forward to working with the Rotary Club in the future.”
