Rochester area manager Eunice Cartner said the children knocked on every door in town to raise the money.
‘‘Everyone chipped in and it was a great effort,’’ she said.
Mrs Cartner was grateful of the support of the Little Athletics and swimming clubs, Leos, SES, fire brigade, junior fire brigade and community members who volunteered their time.
