Look out for Father Christmas in your Putney street this December

Once again Father Christmas will visit many Putney streets on his illuminated musical sleigh – supported by members of Putney Rotary and Rotaract Clubs.

Santa’s whiskers are washed and combed, his illuminated sleigh has been overhauled and Putney Rotary Club’s Christmas Collection is ready to roll.

Some 40 Rotary and Rotaract members will take turns to support Father Christmas as he tours the residential streets of Putney during December 2010.

The annual seasonal collection is the club’s biggest fundraising exercise, last year raising over £7,500 to help local and international charities.

President of Putney Rotary Tony Chase said “Our club may be in one of the wealthiest regions of the country but not everyone shares in the good fortune.”

The collection routes have been carefully planned to cover as many streets as possible and to allow parents to make sure their children catch a glimpse of Father Christmas.

Dates and Routes:

Tue 13 Dec 18:00-21:00 Streets leading off Lower Richmond Road, between Lower Richmond Road and the Thames

Thu 15 Dec 18:00-21:00 Streets leading off Lower Richmond Road

Tue 20 Dec 18:00-21:00 Streets leading off Upper Richmond Road

Thu 21 Dec 18:00-21:00 Streets leading off Upper Richmond Road (northern side) towards Putney Heath

Be prepared, watch out with your kids for the sleigh and Putney Rotary will help you by clearing out your pennies (and banknotes)! See you then!

Notes to Editors

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Members carry out this work in their community and/or overseas by giving their time and their expertise.

A Rotary Club is open to men and women who are business, professional or community leaders who want to use their experience for the benefit of others. Paul Harris formed the world's first service club in Chicago on 23rd February 1905. The name Rotary is derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members' offices.
