THE wider community has benefited thanks to the public’s support of the official re-opening of the iconic Saraton Theatre.
Grafton Midday and Grafton Rotary clubs each received $4000 from the night to spend on a charity.
The Grafton Rotary Club donated its $4000 to Clarence Valley Life Education in order to get its school education program up and running again, while the Grafton Midday Rotary Club presented its cheque to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
Grafton Rotary Club president Matt Chapman, in presenting the cheque to Zeke Huish from the helicopter service, said the club had formed a tradition of donating to the helicopter service.
“The helicopter service is a cause that Rotary has supported for many years now,” Mr Chapman said.
“It is very pleasing that, with the support of the Notaras family and the people of the Clarence, we are able to continue this tradition today.”
