Sunday 8th September 2019
Ideal weather in a wonderful location set the scene for our last Rotary car boot event in 2019. With the kind permission of John and Valerie Hicks, Lower Hook Farm was once again the venue for this very popular Rotary fundraising event. Sellers and Buyers turned out in huge numbers to enjoy a fine afternoon and sell or buy their bargains.
With over 200 stalls and an estimated 1000+ buyers, volunteering Rotary members, friends and family were all kept mightily occupied. Proceeds from the day coming from seller and buyer fees, our ever busy refreshment tent and two Rotary manned stalls, yielded a truly amazing net total of almost £3000.
Additionally, in light of the recent Hurricane Dorian devastation in the Bahamas, our bucket collection specifically for this disaster yielded a further £145. A special thank you for supporting this.
Royal Wootton Bassett Rotary would again like to thank all members of the public who continue to support our fundraising activities.
Examples of where our funds go can be found on our Charitable Giving page.
Look out on www.rwbRotary.club for our next car boot in Spring or Summer 2020.
Finally, a special thank you to all our Rotarians and other volunteers who freely give up their time on and off the field to make holding this and other events possible.
