Maidenhead Thames Rotary Club has raised thousands of pounds for three regional charities through a music concert.
The club raised £3,000 at the Taplow Court charity event in June, with Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice, Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) and Thames Hospice receiving £1,000 each.
The show was organised jointly with the Reading Male Voice Choir, while an extra £1,500 has been given to TVAP from the annual Rotary Thames Valley Pub Quiz championship held in March.
Concert organiser and Rotarian John Carr said: “We will continue to raise money to help in a small way to support them.”
Police were called to the River Thames between Cookham and Bourne End yesterday at about 3pm, to reports that a teenage boy had entered the water but hadn’t been seen to leave.
