Continuing uncertainty over the spread of Coronavirus and the resulting changes to regulations and guidelines has made it difficult to plan for the visits of Santa and his sleigh to local villages this December.
The Rotary Club’s first responsibility is to the safety of our members, volunteers and the public. That’s why we decided last month that no door to door collections would be made this year.
Instead, we’ve arranged to hold static collections at various garden centres and supermarkets. However, these will only go ahead if regulations allow and with the continuing agreement of the businesses concerned.
Our sleigh will be visiting Church Street in Ruddington on Friday 11th December from 10am to 4pm, if you’d like to come along and see us. We’re also planning to take the sleigh on a “no-stopping” tour of the village on the same evening, as soon as darkness falls.
We’re very grateful to the people of Ruddington who support the Rushcliffe Rotary Club so generously each festive season. Every donation made goes into the Club’s Benevolent Fund and is used to support good causes both in our local community and beyond.
If you wish to make a contribution towards the charitable work of the Club, please visit our website, click on “What we do” and then “Make a Donation”. You can also find us on Facebook.
Enjoy the festive season and, please, “Keep safe”.
