WITH more than 20 life-size mascots, weather permitting, set to join Pudsey in Horsham this Sunday, The Rotary Club of Horsham supported by Horsham District Council looks set to bring some great family entertainment to the Carfax for the second week running.

The entertainment all starts around the Carfax bandstand at 12.30 with Fi Steps Dance Group with mascots making appearances in some East Street Restaurants from midday.

There will be four short shows featuring Pudsey Bear starting at 1.30pm and then every 45 minutes until by 4.30pm everyone should have had a chance to see Pudsey and his Pals and the opportunity to contribute to this year’s BBC Children in Need appeal.

Horsham Rotary will ensure that whatever is raised will go to disadvantaged children in our area.

Show timings are currently planned as:

12.00 Some mascots/minders make appearances at East Street Restaurants

12.30 FI Steps around bandstand

12.30 Busydays face painting and DC Leisure start children’s activities

13.00 Mascots start to appear in Enclosures

13.30 First Show

14.15 Second Show

15.00 Third Show

15.45 Fourth Show

16.30 Mascots leave. End of the event.

This Year Rotary in Great Britain is thrilled to be helping Pudsey Bear raise money for BBC Children in Need.

All across the country, Rotary Clubs are supporting the charity and are set to make 2011 their best year yet!

At the core of any Rotary activity is the drive to improve the lives of others by giving time and using their skills for all sorts of activity.

All money donated to the Rotary Children in Need appeal will go to disadvantaged children in the area in which it is raised.
