CHRISTMAS FLOAT COLLECTION
All members of the Rotary Club of Mapperley & Arnold would like to thank everyone for their tremendous support with our Christmas float collection. In late November and in December until Christmas Eve Santa in his sleigh, together with his helpers, walked the streets of Mapperley, Arnold and Calverton as well as static collections at the Mapperley shops, Netherfield Retail Pak and Gonalston Farm Shop.
In total the magnificent sum of £7,500 was raised. We do appreciate your tremendous support and every penny will be used to help many deserving individuals and organisations such as Gedling Memory Cafe, clothing collection for Emmanuel House, food collection for Arnold Foodbank, Outward Bound, working with schools on an Eco Greenhouse project and planting crocus corms as part of the End Polio Now campaign and many, many more.
Our main project undertaken in the last year was for the well being of patients who are based at Hayward House, situated at the City Hospital, who require high quality palliative care having life limiting illnesses. The Club have created a courtyard out of an unused area at Hayward House Hospice for patients and family to sit in and enjoy the surroundings.
For more information please get in touch.
