Good causes in the money thanks to Collier Row Community Group

Good causes were in the money thanks to the Collier Row Community Group recently.

At its presentation evening at the Forest Row Community Centre, Lodge Lane, the group thanked everyone who supported the Collier Row Carnival and Fun Day, which was held earlier this year.

Ella Rayment, from the group, said: “It was a chance for the group to thank everyone who helped & supported the group at this year Carnival & Fun Day.

“We were also able to present the donations to the local groups that we have helped out this year.”

They donated �1,000 to the Wellgate Community Farm, �500 to Collier Row Football Club, as well as donations to the Collier Row Library Knit & Natter group, Hornchurch Animal Rescue and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Great Ormond Street was chosen because of the care it gave Collier Row schoolgirl Aisha Abdurahim when she was in a coma following a road traffic collision.

The group also gave donations to the Collier Row Foodbank, based in the Church of The Good Shepherd on Collier Row Lane.
