Rotarians enlist Santa to raise funds
Rudolph’s red-nose days set to benefit local good causes…
For Santa and his little helpers are set to hit the road on Monday, 10th December, on a six-night sleigh run around local neighbourhoods to collect for local good causes.
After touring Queen Margaret Fauld and the Queensgate estate on the 10th, Tablers and Rotarians will take their door-to-door canvass to Duloch – to the Barratt estate on Tuesday, 11th,and Wednesday, 12th, and to the Dover Park area on Wednesday, 12th, and Thursday, 13th.
Fergusson Road is next on Rudolph’s itinerary on Thursday, 13th, and, for Tablers, the merry-go-round ends in Pitcorthie Estate on the weekend of 15th and 16th December.
However organisers point out, “All routes are subject to change and weather-dependent, so be sure to check Dunfermline Round Table’s Facebook page for updates on each night.”
For Rotarians, the Christmas capers continue when Santa and Rudolph park their sleigh outside the car park entrance to Tesco’s Fire Station superstore, where collectors will be can-rattling from 12 noon to 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday, 15th and 16th December and from 4.30pm to 6.30 on Monday, 17th, and Tuesday, 18th December.
Santa’s final pit-stop will be on Saturday, 22nd December, in Dunfermline High Street where he will be gathering Christmas wishes and cash donations for deserving causes from 1pm to 5pm.
Rotarian Graham Steedman, the club’s community convener, says, “Santa’s sleigh is always a magnet for local youngsters as excitement mounts in the count-down to the Big Day. And Santa never fails to deliver Christmas cheer to deserving causes around the district.”
Tablers David Lawrence and Craig Smith added, “Our donations are channelled each year through Fife Council social work department to families for whom the generosity of the Dunfermline public will provide some extra stocking-fillers this festive season.”
