Potters Bar charities benefit from Rotary Club Christmas Cards
December 1, 2010 by Lyndon
The Potters Bar Rotary Club is doings its part for good causes during the festive season, as it has launched a range of Christmas cards designed to raise funds for the needy. Hot off the presses of a print company, the Potter’s Bar club is donating all proceeds from the sales of the Christmas cards to provide much needed help for the following local and international charities:
Hearing dogs for the Deaf
Herts Air Ambulance
Potters Bar Rotary Club Community Fund
Polio Eradication’s ‘Thanks for Life’ Campaign
Helping Dogs for the Disabled
DEBRA is a charity that helps children suffering various skin diseases, and Shelterbox provides emergency supplies such as food, water, tents and sleeping bags to disaster hotspots across the globe such as Haiti.
Rather than choose generic festive images for the cards, the Rotary Club has personalised the cards by featuring images of its recent Sleigh Run, which is an annual event whereby members of the Club pay a visit to homes around Potters Bar in a drive to raise funds for their chosen causes.
The Rotary Club is a national organisation consisting of more than 55,000 people, known as Rotarians, across 1,850 separate locations within the UK. They are notable for their ceaseless charity work. A condition of being a Rotarian involves the donation of time and resources to improve things for their local communities.
The cards are available in packs of ten from Rotarian John Godfrey at Accident & Repair Centre in the High Street.
