Christmas Fundraising 2014
Santa and his sleigh raised more than Â£7,500 for the Rotary Club of Horwich in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Santa and his sleigh raised more than £7,500 for the Rotary Club of Horwich to distribute to local and international charities in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
President Paul Whitney commented, "When touring Horwich, Santa and his helpers, although sometimes cold and wet, are delighted to meet so many young children eager to make sure he knows where they live and what they want for Christmas."
At the same time, this is a major fund raising activity for the Club, enabling us to support many worthwhile projects and causes both in and around Horwich and further afield. The amount given by so many families whose budgets are always under pressure at this time of year continues to amaze us and I thank everyone for their generosity.
On behalf of the Club, I must also extend my thanks Kia Motors who provided the car which enabled Santa and his sleigh to tour the streets of Horwich and to local supermarkets who allowed us to collect at the entrance to their stores.
