Santa Claus and his helpers from the Rotary Club of Rushcliffe would like to thank everyone who contributed towards the raising of £9,000 when Santa and his sleigh visited local areas last month.
The club is grateful to Sandicliffe Motors for generously loaning and decorating the towing vehicle and to NotCutts and Morrisons at Gamston for allowing the sleigh and volunteers to spend time on their premises.
During December the sleigh, usually accompanied by Santa, undertook 10 evening collections and paid 11 trips to garden centres and supermarkets. Keeping to this ambitious programme would not have been possible without the help of volunteers from our communities.
A very special “thank -you” goes to over 50 volunteers, both individuals and members of local groups, who braved the uncertain weather to knock on doors or stand holding collecting buckets.
All the money raised from the sleigh rounds goes into the Club’s Benevolent Account and is used solely to support good causes. The club is always keen to hear from local groups, engaged in community work, who might benefit from a grant. You can contact the club via our website or on Facebook.
Best wishes for 2023 and thanks you for your continuing support.
The Rotary Club of Rushcliffe
