A Big Thank You from the Rotary Club of Horsham
 
December is a very busy month for the Rotary Club of Horsham, and the Club thanks everyone who contributed to their street collections and Charity Christmas Market, which raised more than £6,000. Proceeds from the collections will help local families as part of the Club’s “Making a Difference” scheme, which donates small sums to local people where a little help will make a significant difference in their lives.
 
Les and Dee Searle’s 1922 steam bus was a popular feature in the Christmas Market, and Rotary Club members also collected at Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Newbridge nursery, as well as the town centre and local neighbourhoods.  
 
“The people of Horsham are very generous and we really appreciate their support of our charity work,” said Rotary Club member and organiser Dave Smith. 
“We are very pleased to be able to help so many families and individuals in Horsham with the funds we raised over the Christmas period, and thank all those who gave so generously to make this possible.”
 
2017 was another busy and fruitful year for Rotary Club of Horsham, with charitable donations of over £40,000 in 18 months. Most were for local people and organisations, but the Club also assisted in the BBC’s Children in Need charity and international disaster relief efforts.
