Children In Need Collection at Heathrow Airport
Over 300 members of Rotary, Rotaract and Interact Clubs in the area of Heathrow Airport took part in our yearly Children in Need Collection in November 2016 in all Terminals, organised by Misbourne Matins Rotary Club and Marlow Thames Rotary Club. Collections started at 6:00am and continued to 8:00pm that evening at Arrivals and Departures on the landside, and all the Airside areas. Pudsey Bears were distributed throughout the Terminals to highlight the Children in Need Appeal.
The travelling public's response was tremendous, most of them giving coins and notes of many countries. All currencies were collected, bagged and delivered to Travelex at their offices for counting and conversion. The volunteers arrived throughout the day and collected for periods of up to 6 hours each. We wish to thank them for all their hard work and enthusiasm, which contributed to another record year for Children in Need.
Each year Misbourne Matins Rotary Club organises a golf day to raise funds for Rotary Charities.
This is a successful event in which over 100 people take part and £12,000 is distributed to charities as a result.
Each year, members of the club roam the streets of Gerrards Cross and surrounding areas, knocking on doors and standing outside shops to appeal to the general public for funds.
These funds are then distributed to local good causes.
