After five fantastic days and nights the Sleigh has ended another Christmas season with over £3,000 pounds being collected for good causes. Every night was very busy with thousands coming out onto the streets to see Santa's Sleigh. In fact we must apologise for the late running of the Sleigh Tuesday and Wednesday nights due to the hugh number of people who wanted to meet Santa.
Great news from our friends in Nepal!
The Stone Laying Ceremony at Prithvi Rupa Secondary school, Rupakot VDC, 25km east from Pokhara valley, took place last week. The school was totally damaged by the April earthquake. The school's foundations have been destroyed and six classrooms cannot be used safely. The school is also directly below a landslide slope. At the moment two or even three classes are crammed into a single classroom.
The Rotary club of Pokhara Fishtail will oversee the construction of the two storey six rooms and toilet with the generous financial support of the Rotary Club of Dronfield UK. The total cost estimation of this project is NPR. 7,000,000 - (£40,000 to £50,000) and will hopefully be completed within six months.

Bill Gates and Rotary's 30th Anniversary of Polio Plus
Today at #ricon15, Bill Gates congratulated Rotary on the 30th anniversary of the PolioPlus program. Thanks to Rotary members’ vision in 1985 of a polio-free world, we’ve made incredible progress and are closer than ever to ending polio.

The Rotary Club of Dronfield is a friendly and lively club whose members come from Dronfield and the surrounding towns and villages. We meet on Tuesday lunchtimes, and occasionally for an evening dinner meeting with guests specifically invited.
Our club brings together people who want to make a difference to the lives of others who are less fortunate than ourselves. We do this whilst enjoying the fellowship within our club. We are one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs spread over more than 200 countries, each starting with a commitment to 'Service Above Self.'
