After the disappointment of last year, when we were unable to undertake our usual collections because of Covid restrictions, we are pleased to announce that things should be back to normal this year and Santa will once agaim be visiting the streets of Folkestone on his sleigh.
This year, Santa's elves will be able to receive donations to our Christmas appeal via contactless payments as well as cash, so please be as generous as possible to help us to provide a little good cheer for those in need in our district.
Please note that we make every endeavour to cover all the streets listed below, but circumstances may arise where routes need to be amended at very short notice (even during the collection itself) and areas omitted. The Rotary Club of Folkestone apologises for any inconvenience or disppointment this may cause.
The planned schedule for our collections this year is:
Wednesday December 1st
St Michaels Street
Radnor Bridge Road
Wear Bay Crescent
Thursday December 2nd
Monday December 6th
St Martins Road
Royal Military Avenue
Tuesday December 7th
