MORE than $800 was collected throughout Heathcote for this year’s Red Cross Calling appeal.
The annual nation-wide fundraiser finished here last week with a final round of collecting at the local markets.
‘‘All the locals involved in Red Cross came – it was so helpful,’’ member Ann Collinson said.
‘‘And a really big thanks must go to the local community for once again being so generous to the appeal,’’ she said.
The money will go towards various Red Cross programs around the nation.
