Among the many stalls at the Rotary Summer Fête and Craft Fair, held on Sandpit Field on Thursday August 11th, was a popular tombola stand set up and run by local solicitors Humphries Kirk.
The money raised was recently presented to Swanage & Purbeck Rotary and we were delighted to receive a cheque for over £220!
Rotary President Chris Le Fevre said “We are hugely grateful to Humphries Kirk for their very generous donation which will go towards local projects. Humphries Kirk have been a long-standing and valued Rotary Business Partner and their continuing support is much appreciated.”
It’s been a busy few weeks for Swanage & Purbeck Rotary.
The Annual Christmas Street Market on the 8th was again a great success. Over 50 stalls braved the rather windy weather and the threat of rain, and were rewarded by being well supported by the local community.
Either side of that, Santa and his sleigh have been touring Swanage, Langton and Corfe Castle over a 16 day period from 3rd. Large groups of children came out in all weathers to see him and there were plenty of sweets to go round! Keep an eye out for the winner of the Giant Hamper, which is being drawn at Hays Travel on the afternoon of 22nd December from the free raffle tickets that were handed out on the sleigh’s rounds and which have been entered into the draw. It could be you!
At the same time, our Christmas post service has been operating over the first half of December, and we have hand delivered over 4,000 cards to local addresses in the run up to Christmas.
In total, we have raised thousands of pounds for Rotary-supported projects and our grateful thanks go to everyone who has supported, attended and contributed to our events.
We will once again be running our breakfast on Christmas morning, for people who will be on their own and who have registered to attend. This is always a happy and joyful event that we all look forward to.
We would like to thank our wonderful Business Partners for their fantastic and ongoing support of our activities, and we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Successful 2019.
