Wantage Rotary had another very successful Dickensian Evening.
We were very pleased with the footfall at our pitch at Dickensian Evening on December 6th.
Once again, a great deal of work had gone into the preparation and set up, with a total of 14 Rotarians and Friends of Rotary involved.
We sold 4 Christmas trees, which we will deliver.
As with last year, the mistletoe, which David Castle had travelled many a mile to acquire, proved very popular, and was all gone by just after 8 o’clock!
A new innovation, our ‘water or wine’ lucky dip, an idea dreamt up by Sharon, was an outstanding success, with a queue of hopefuls keeping her busy for several hours. Sharon was very ably assisted by Vicki and Niki. We were also very grateful for all the effort put into decorating our tree by Fiona, and to Sallie for once again running the children's lucky dip.
Events like this can raise some useful funds for our good works account, but the principal purpose is to raise awareness of Rotary, what we do, how we do it, and how much fun and fellowship we find along the way!
