The Havering East Rotary Club helped to raise more than £8,200 for charity after taking its sleigh on a trip through Upminster and Cranham.

Members of the club joined Santa and his sleigh on a journey through the borough in the run up to the festive season.

Some of the funds were also raised from collections outside a number of supermarkets in Havering.

The money is set to be donated to First Step, St Francis Hospice and Ravensbourne and Dycorts School.

Phil Edwards, from the club said: “Havering East Rotary Club would like to thank the many kind and generous people who gave to our collections this Christmas.”
