Barney boosts Rotary work

A Kirkby Rotary Club pre-Christmas fundraiser to guess the birthday of Barney the Bear has raised money for charity.

The bear was on display alongside Santa’s Grotto at Reuben Shaw’s garden centre in Moorgreen for the four weekends leading up to Christmas.

He was won by Mrs Emma Kelly, of Kimberley, who guessed the correct date, September 7th.

The funds raised by Barney, along with those from the Kirkby Rotary’s Santa’s Grotto, will be donated to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and to support several other Rotary charity projects.
