Full details of this years sleigh runs are here.
Santas Sleigh is run entirely by volunteers. They freely give their time, vehicles, etc to take the sleigh out on cold dark nights to make this charity fund raising project successful. We have a limited number of people who volunteer and therefore we can only cover a limited number of streets. If we get more volunteers we can cover more of the local area so please email email@example.com or phone 01246 488059 and volunteer.
The club was at Sainsbury's Dronfield on November 29th supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust. We were running a bucket collection for the Trust and a total of £340 was collected. Many thanks to those who donated. Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word 'cancer.' The Teenage Cancer Trust are the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Guest speakers at our meeting on Tuesday 26th November were 2 young men who are setting out to cycle 9,000 miles through SE Asia to support UNICEF and Aquabox. The expedition begins in January 2014 in Singapore and finishes at the end of July in India. The route takes the Action4Asia team through ten countries which are home to some of the worlds poorest people. On route the team will meet up with various charities and document the humanitarian projects which they are undertaking. Follow the expedition online at http://www.action4asia.org/
A Welcoming Message from the Club President
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.'
