Local Communities Raise Vital Funds For Safe and Sound
Local people in Littleover, Mickleover and Chellaston have helped Rotary Club of Derby raise £2,500 for specialist Derby charity Safe and Sound.
Volunteers and Rotary Club members took their Santa Sleigh across the local communities – collecting donations from generous residents.
The money will go towards Safe and Sound’s Butterfly Appeal which is raising money to expand the work that the charity does to support children and young people who are victims of or at risk of exploitation.
Safe and Sound Chief Executive Tracy Harrison said: “We are extremely grateful to Rotary Club of Derby for choosing to support our charity this year.
“Santa Sleigh brings so much joy to families across Derby and we are heartened by people’s response through their generous donations.
“This will help us to support many more young people in our local communities to stay safe and to continue to raise awareness of the increasing dangers of online grooming and exploitation facing boys and girls as young as eight.”
