Wreake Valley Rotary Club Christmas 2021 Round Up

The Christmas period is an important time for Wreake Valley Rotary Club members and volunteer helpers including the Good Gym group. It is one of our busiest periods for fundraising.
The weather in December was kind on the twelve evenings of collecting with our charity Santa Sleigh except for rain in Birstall on the last night.
We also held collections at both Dunelm and Asda in Thurmaston, and organised our inaugural Christmas fancy dress themed charity run, the “Watermead Winter Warmer”.
Club President Graham Packwood (pictured at the run) commented: “we are very grateful to the public, our volunteers and both supermarkets for their support during this important time. Decisions on the allocation of funds to charitable causes, including Rainbows Hospice will be made by the end of February and will be widely publicised. We take great care to ensure all monies raised are distributed as wisely and fairly as possible. Many thanks to all concerned.”
