Lord Mayor’s Christmas Collection 2014

The weather was kind this year for the annual street collection in the City Centre for the Lord Mayor of Canterbury’s Christmas Gift Fund and twenty-four members of our Club assisted in encouraging the passers-by to be generous in supporting this worthy cause. Some dressed more flamboyantly than others!!

A regular attender at this event was Roger Burville, who has participated for over 50 years and who brought a “digital” organ on this occasion. There was also an added attraction with stirring music from the band of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, who had offered to come in the morning to support the Lord Mayor. They soon drummed up a crowd, and over £1,000 was collected on that one day!

(Our Club has had an active involvement with the Christmas Gift Fund since 1952 when Harold Young, a Canterbury Rotarian at the time (and a one-time RIBI President), was instrumental in founding the Charity).
