Once again we have been amazed by the generosity of local people who have come out to support us and the various charities and organisations that have worked with us over the Christmas period.  So far you have helped us raise over £9,600 !!

Poole Bay Rotary Santa Express

The Santa Express was out and about on 16 nights during December 2017 and raised a total of £7306.

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

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

  • HomeStart (SE Dorset), Novatruient International, Poole Lions, Poole Soroptimists and WaterAid also had a go.

Christmas charity collections at Tesco

Poole Bay Rotary and Inner Wheel  collected at Tesco in Branksome (Poole Road) on three days from 20 to 22 December and raised  a total of £1534.

Many thanks to Tesco for allowing us to collect here.

Street Music

With live music on Poole Quay and in Falkland Square on Saturday 2 December "Street Music" returned as part of the Poole BID's Christmas Extravaganza.  We used this to help us raise money for locally based Poole charity, Routes to Roots - helping the homeless not only at Christmas, but year round.

You donated £329 through the street collection as well as buying £382 worth of raffle tickets.

Grand Raffle

Last year you helped us raise £1000 to support the work of Routes to Roots though a GRAND RAFFLE.  So far we have already sold nearly £500 worth of tickets - and the draw doesn't take place until 18 January.

This year there are over 25 prizes, including

  • £100 voucher for Brittany Ferries

  • 4 rounds of gold at Bulbury Woods Golf Course
