Huge thanks to all of the people of Horsham who came along to the Rotary Club of Horsham’s Charity Christmas Market last Sunday and rode Horsham’s amazing steam bus.

The Club raised nearly £1,100 which will go towards providing a better Christmas to some of the more needy in our community. Naturally big thanks also go to Les and Dee Searle and their family for allowing the use of their marvellous bus.

The total funds raised by all of the Charities represented at the Market was around £3,000. Thanks to all participants and helpers.

Horsham Rotary will be holding collections at Newbridge Nurseries, Tesco, Sainsburys and in the Town Centre. During the week commencing December 12, the Horsham Rotary Float will be touring the area. Please give generously. Proceeds of these collections will also go to helping local needy or sick families as part of our ‘Making a Difference to Horsham’ campaign.

To find out more about Horsham Rotary, please email or call 0845 299 6606.
