South Yorkshire rotary club fundraisers have teamed up with schools to raise £9,000 over two years for a disaster relief charity.

Barnsley Rockley and Stainborough rotary clubs were collecting money for Shelterbox at the Locke Park Classic Car Rally in Barnsley.

They were congratulated by Mayor of Barnsley, Coun Ken Richardson, and his wife Nadia.

The rotary clubs are also seeking sponsorship for the 2014 Barnsley Disability Games.
