Doing Good at Christmas

Christmas is a busy time for Rotary Clubs everywhere and Tettenhall is no exception as we once again took to the streets of Wolverhampton to support Santa Claus. For many of our members the opportunity to take a little Christmas magic to children in parts of the City who otherwise would be unlikely to have the opportunity to see Santa Claus really does make this one of the best times of the year.

Since the start of the Festive Season with the switch on of the Christmas Lights on Tettenhall Upper Green members of the Club have been busy working with the ladies of the Tettenhall Inner Wheel Club and the young men and women of the Army Cadet Corps accompanying Santa around Wolverhampton as well as raising money in support local good causes.

Despite the difficult economic conditions, the generosity of the people of Wolverhampton has not diminished with over £6,500 raised in aid of Compton Hospice and other Rotary Charities.

The Club’s thanks go to Terminus Contract Hire in Wolverhampton, Asda in Wolverhampton, Sainsburys of Perton and the Midcounties Co-operative at Codsall for their support and to sleigh co-ordinator Chris Bowyer and his team for all of their hard work.
