Xmas Eve in Rainhill Village Centre will see the conclusion of the 2017 Santa Sleigh Collections.

A massive "thank you" to Graham Rutherford at GR Motors in Rainhill, who provided a sponsored towing vehicle for the Sleigh which is a super gesture from Graham for which the Rotary Club of Rainhill is extremely grateful


Having started the collections in Billinge, Rainhill Rotarians have been been collecting donations from our very generous residents and neighbours.

The Santa Sleigh has visited 14 different locations for Street Collections, provided half a dozen Static stands at major supermarkets in St.Helens and fronted 6 Santa sessions over 2 days in the Whiston Hospital reception area.

Many thanks to our Members who, as always have turned out in all weathers and many, many thanks to everyone who has donated to the Xmas collections. We shall, of course, distribute the funds we have received to many charitable and worthy causes on your behalf.

Thanks also to all the members of the public (young and not so young) who came out to see Santa and to those who provided hot tea, coffee and mince pies, it was very welcome.

Another big thank you to Neil at Caffe & Co in Rainhill Village, who kindly provided flasks of tea and coffee on Xmas Eve morning outside the Co-op, which was warmly appreciated by all our members on the day.

Rob, the Manager of the Rainhill Co-op also showed Xmas spirit and generosity by providing mince pies to go with our hot drinks, again really appreciated by all Rotary members and our helpers. 

We hope you enjoy our picture carousel at the top of this page.
