The Rotary Club of Rushcliffe seeks volunteers to help with Christmas collections

The Rotary Club of Rushcliffe are seeking volunteers to help them with their Christmas Santa Collection this year.

The club said:

The collection has been running for over forty years, and has raised well over one hundred thousand pounds to help both local and international charities. Collecting with Santa is a wonderful experience that brings help to many people.
