Stroud Rotary was unable to have collection with Father Christmas at Tesco Stroud this year due to Covid-19. Instead we ran a Virtual Christmas Balloon Race to raise funds for a local charity. 

Thanks you to everyone who paticipated 
you helped us raise £1,150

 which includes a donation from Stroud Valleys Family Practice of £300 from their secondhand book sales for the year and £200 from Barbara Ruthers from the proceeds from selling her homemade face masks.

We bought £350 worth of Christmas presents for the children who will be at the Refuse at Christmas and donated £800 to the Refuge.

Thanks you to everyone who participated.
