Farnborough Rotary Club’s Christmas Float Charity Collection Update January 2021
As you are aware this has been a challenging year for the Club as we have sought to maintain our long tradition of collecting much needed Charity funds during the period leading up to Christmas. Mindful of the need to protect the health and wellbeing our of collectors and the public and to ensure that we operated in a Covid-19 safe way we took the difficult decision not to carry out our normal street collections, supported by our colourful Christmas Float and Santa Claus, but to focus solely on static collections in North Camp, B&Q, Costco, Princesmead and Queensmead.
In addition, we opened a JustGiving page and invited direct payments into our Charity Account.
We are extremely grateful to all those within our community who kindly made donations, either in person or on- line, which has enabled us to collect a total of £4428.59. Although, as expected, this is less than the £15000 we collected last year it will nevertheless enable us to continue supporting deserving causes locally.
Thank you also to the site owners for kindly allowing us to position our Float outside their premises and to Rushmoor Borough Council for its support.
Together we have continued to make a difference.
