Christmas Collections

Fund Raising

Christmas Float

For many years, the main fundraising activity of both  the Rotary Club of West Bridgford and the Keyworth and Ruddington Club have been their annual Santa Float Collections. With the merger, we now have one float which we parade through the streets of West Bridgford, Keyworth, Ruddington, Kinoulton and Notcutts Garden Centre during the month of December

We are very generously supported and we manage to raise over £ 12000 which is then distibuted to local charities. Principle beneficiaries recently have been the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, Dove Cottage Hospice, an outstanding local clarintist, and many other local and a few overseas charities.

Our members are supported by many local volunteers, to whom we are extremely grateful.

This coming Christmas (2020) is going to be a particularly difficult and interesting time for our efforts. We do not yet know how much the Covid-19 restrictions will allow us to proceed. We fully intend to mount the collections as we have done in previous years, so we look forward to seeing  many of you during the course of December.

If you feel that you could volunteer to help us on one of the collections please contact us via our e-mail
