Christmas Collections - Dec 2023

Collecting for local and childrens' charities

Christmas Collections - Dec 2023

For details of our Christmas activities ... please click on the sleigh below

The link takes you to our new Christmas website which has the routes, dates and times of our Rotary Sleigh with Santa and his little helpers, plus the locations, dates and times of our store collections.


During the week before Santa and the sleigh start their travels around the borough, club members distribute flyers to the homes along each route, so the families with children know when to expect a visit. 

Here's the front page of this year's flyer ...

and here's the reverse page of the flyer.  


Once Santa and the sleigh have completed their routes around the borough, collections start at three local Beckenham supermarkets. Club members, their partners and friends collect for local and childrens' charities over two days at each supermarket, finishing up a few days before Christmas day.


The last store collections took place on Thursday 21st Dec and our efforts this year raised a total of over £10,100, collected in the streets and the stores in Beckenham. 

See the carousel above for a selection of pictures taken of members and friends collecting for local and childrens' charities this year.

As always, our grateful thanks go to the residents of Beckenham for their generosity.

A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you all.
