Help Pudsey fly through the roof!

Rotary in the Thames Valley has a particularly strong connection with our partners at BBC Children in Need, not least through the hugely successful Heathrow Collection in November where the whole of the Rotary family gets involved

Rotary @ Heathrow for Children in Need

Friday 16 November 6.00am - 8.00pm

All Terminals Heathrow Airport UK 

CiN Heathrow Collection 2018 is on Friday 16 November. Save the date!! Details to follow.

The Rotary Children in Need collection at Heathrow goes from strength to strength with a record £39,000 collected in 2015 by Rotarians, Rotaractors, Inner Wheel and Interacters from District 1090. This year the team is aiming to smash the record, but they need your help!

Co-ordinated by Paul Fisher of Misbourne Matins, the RIBI Volunteer Co-ordinator for the Rotary-CiN partnership nationwide, the success of this collection relies on a large number of enthusiastic volunteers, prepared to give up a couple of hours (or more) of their time to charm donations from travellers into the CiN collecting boxes. Any currency will do!!! Lots of loose change/ unwanted notes to be had!

There is terrific support from the Heathrow management and staff, including handling currency conversion at the end of the day, access to parking, vouchers for respite snacks, and generally joining in the fun of the event, so in the company of other fun-loving Rotary friends, a good time for all is guaranteed.

Join in the fun and volunteer too! Pudsey accessories available!! 

Sign up here!!!

It is such a good opportunity to fly the Rotary flag and show what Join Leaders, Exchange Ideas, Take Action can really achieve when put into practice. A huge number of children's projects - some local to you - benefit from CiN grants.
