Horsham Rotary Club’s annual Christmas Charity Market  raises £600

Horsham Rotary Club’s annual Christmas Charity Market  raised £600 towards Horsham Rotary’s Christmas giving to the needier families of the town and it’s immediate surrounds. The market played ‘home’ to a number of local charities including St Catherine’s Hospice; Chestnut Tree House; Macmillan  who raised £368 on the day; Age-UK Horsham; West Sussex Mediation Services; Horsham’s Repair Café; Friends Reaching Out’….transforming the lives of orphaned children ; Neil’s Club….a place for people with young onset dementia; Cats Protection etc .  Horsham Citizen’s Advice Bureau used the event to remind the community of the valuable  services that they offer from their premises near Horsham Library.

Les & Dee Searle’s magnificent  Steam Bus offered  visitors to the market a circular tour of Horsham Town which attracted queues all day…with several overseas visitors, including notably a   family from Norway who were certainly amazed at seeing such a wonderful example of steam engineering.

Horsham Rotary will be collecting more funds over  the weeks before Christmas….. if you should see us  and Santa at Newbridge Nurseries; Sainsbury; Tesco;  Carfax,  please say Hi and drop a coin or two in our collecting boxes; Santa will also be operating house to house collections on various routes around Horsham and Southwater on the evenings of 11-14th and 18th December between 6pm and 8pm.

Horsham Rotary Club wishes everyone a  joyous Festive Season and thanks everybody for all your support during the past year at our local events including the Pancake Races, Bunny Hunt, Funday Sunday, Trick or Treat , Pudsey’s Party and Slot Cars. We will be back !!
