This Christmas has been one like no other!


Despite COVID, it has been amazing to see so many of you at your front doors, in your drives welcoming the Santa Express.

Many of you have said how surprised you were to see us, this year.  This has been one great way to show that Rotary is very much part of the local community.  It has a real treat to be able to bring some (much needed) Christmas cheer to everyone.

Thank you so much for your support, once again.  Altogether the Santa Express received donations totaling just over £6000.  It's great that we, alongside the other organisations that worked with us, are now able to financially support a wide range of local charities.  THANK YOU!

Poole Bay Rotary Santa Express

The Santa Express was out and about on 16 nights during December 2020. These events raised a total of £6017, of which £2300 was collected by Poole Bay Rotary

  • Thanks to the financial support of our Business Partners, all the money you donate goes to charity

  • Poole Bay, Poole, Parkstone and Westbourne Rotary Clubs took turns on the float this year

  • Dorset Mind, Poole Lions, and Upton community volunteers also had a go.

We weren't able to collect at tthe supermarkets this year

And the best news is . . . 

We've been doing Christmas collections since 2004.  As a result of your generosity over these 16 years, you have given over £108,000.  Thank you so much.
