Cash raised to help refugees.
Organised by the Rotary Club of Teesside Wesst and assisted by members of neighbouring clubs, the fundraising was helped by a generous contribution of PS1,200 from Yarm School and an anonymous donation of PS50.
Thanking everyone who helped out, Rotarian Barry Cummings said: "This total is due to the unstinting support and generosity of the people who were in Yarm on Friday and Saturday.
Many of the donations placed in our buckets were in the form of paper money."
The appeal was initially planned to replace the 1,500 Shelterboxes Rotary UK had already sent to aid the Syrian refugees, but was expanded following the Philippines disaster.
