The Rotary Club of Horsham thanks everybody who contributed to its various 2014 Christmas Collections at Sainsburys, Tesco, around the Streets and in the Town Centre which together raised over £4500.

It would have been more but unfortunately some nasty gremlins got into our float which prevented us from completing our street collections as planned ….. we apologise profusely to all disappointed children who were waiting to see Santa visit their home.

We have used the majority of the funds raised to provide Grocery Vouchers to less fortunate local families to enable them to have a little bit better Christmas than otherwise, and the remainder will be spent in the coming months on helping similarly deserving families and individuals as part of our ‘making a difference to Horsham ’ scheme which has donated over £50,000 in the last 39 months.

To apply to the scheme visit our website ( and click on ‘Making a Difference Application’..
