Over the last few years the Community Committee and all our Club has organised A Rotary Club of Dronfield Santas’s Sleigh. We have been joined by members of local businesses Staves Estate Agents and member of staff from Ferndale Garden Centre
Organising Santa’s Sleigh which brings so much fun to the town during the dark December evenings. It also raises substantial funds for Community Projects in our area as well as supporting International appeals for help following natural disasters.
Organising the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in the Town, raising a total in excess of £30,000 in the last 2 years (2016 & 2017).
In 2018/19 Santa’s Sleigh and the Poppy Appeal will again be organised by the Club. We need your help to make it a success contact us through the website or ring our Club Hotline 07445 050988 if you would like to join us on one of our round the streets or static collections- all details on the website.
In addition we are in discussion with the Town Council about the following Community Iniatives:-
- Organise a Santa Fun Run as part of the Town’s Christmas Activities in December.
- Work with them and NEDDC to provide a Skateboard Park for use by young people as skateboarding will become an Olympic Event in 2020. We need Your support to persuade the Council to support this.
- Establish a Rotary Heart Walk around Cliffe Park to encourage people who have suffered heart attack, stroke or other illness in their recovery by walking short distances.
The committee is also seeking to bring a speaker from Shoe Aid to one of our meetings to look at the possibility of recycling and /or redistributing old shoes to help both local people and those in developing countries.
