Fireworks Raise £22500 For Charities
Fireworks that lit up the sky above Wokingham have also brightened up local charities with £22,500 in generous donations.
West Forest Unicorn Club, which organises the Cantley Fireworks Spectacular in the town each year, has presented cheques to several charities to boost their coffers.
Last month’s show raised £22,500, which has been shared among Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance (TVAC), Wokingham District Cancer Care Trust (WDCCT) and the local branch of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.
Members of the Windsor Forest Unicorn Club presented the cheques to Heide Fowkes, from WDCCT, and Stuart Rowsell, from TVAC, last Tuesday at Cantley House Hotel in Milton Road.
Town mayor Councillor UllaKarin Clark and borough mayor Cllr Barrie Patman went along to the presentation, which included a photographic display of some of the best fireworks from the event, which took place at Cantley Park in Twyford Road in November.
