The Rotary Club of Rushcliffe would like to thank everyone who contributed towards the raising of £10,000 when Santa and his sleigh visited local areas over the Christmas period.
The club is grateful to Sandicliffe Motors for the loan of the towing vehicle and to Notcutts and Morrisons at Gamston for permitting the sleigh and volunteers to spend time at their premises.
During December the sleigh, accompanied by Santa, undertook eleven “walking” collections and eight 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 spokesperson said:
‘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 Fund 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 the website or Facebook.
‘Best wishes for 2024 and thank you for your continuing support.
‘The Rotary Club of Rushcliffe.’
