Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to the 2017 Santa's Sleigh for the Rotary Club of Dronfield. Total amount collected from our activities with the Sleigh in the week running up to Christmas is a magnificent £4441.19.
Members of the Rotary Club of Dronfield delivered Christmas Hampers to local residents. The recipients were identified by the Dronfield Henry Fanshaw School, who organised the collation and packing of the Hampers. For a number of years the RC of Dronfield have undertaken to deliver the 50+ Hampers, and despite the icy weather, 2017 was no exception. Recipients verbally expressed their thanks for the arrangements made and for the delivery.
We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in Dronfield raised a total of £14,756.16. The Rotary Club of Dronfield would like to thank the many hundreds of volunteers and supporters across the community who gave their time and effort to raise this magnificent total.
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.'
