BUSY ROTARIANS
It was a busy run up to Christmas for Knaresborough's Rotarians, helping to run the Knaresborough Christmas Markets, manning the Tombola stall, marshalling the Bright Friday parade and the Christmas Eve Nativity play, collecting Shoeboxes from King James's School and organising a Toy Collection, whilst some helped PhysioNet to load a container of medical equipment for South Africa in freezing conditions.

Knaresborough Christmas Markets were busier than ever, despite the freezing weather, with coach loads pouring into the town from the Northeast to enjoy the festive event. Organised by Rotary, Lions and the Chamber of Commerce, visitors were entertained by Choirs and Bands and able to buy a variety of food and gifts from the many local stallholders. Despite the foggy weather on Sunday evening, the event ended with the traditional Fireworks viewed from the Castle top.

Students at King James’s School and their families have filled 177 shoe boxes to send off to some of the poorest countries in Europe as part of the National Rotary Shoebox Scheme. Each shoebox is filled with items that will make a massive difference to families in need. 

Knaresborough Rotary is open to both men and women and welcomes new members. To find out more contact secretary@knaresborough.rotary1040.org
