Christmas Collections and Roger
Our visits to Bishops Waltham and Fair Oak  were very wet to say the least . 
Our team had to cut Fair Oak a little towards the end as they were so wet and soaked through. Thank you to those that came out to see us, you are all heroes.





. To all, please have a joyful and safe Christmas and New Year





Hampshire Hospitals Foundations Trust

Santa has made a special detour from delivering presents this afternoon to visit our hospital in Winchester to speak to some of our younger patients and staff.
Santa, who swapped his sleigh and reindeers for a rotary engine train that plays Christmas music and lights up, spoke to some of children and staff over the phone from two floors below to wish them a very merry Christmas!
A big thank you to
Bishops Waltham Rotary Club
for arranging this social distance visit and spreading some more Christmas cheer for all!

Roger Library Picture
One of the usual highlights of the run up to Christmas is our Christmas collections where we tour the streets of Bishop’s Waltham, Waltham Chase, Horton Heath, and Fair Oak with “Roger” our brightly lit and music playing Christmas Steam Engine. Unfortunately, with restrictions as they are, we will not be able to tour round as usual with Santa greeting the Children and taking their Christmas Present orders this year, but because we have been told on numerous occasions that Bishop’s Waltham Rotary Club coming round with Roger the Steam Engine is the start of Christmas we feel we need to do something.

This year we will attempt to drive round most of our usual routes at some point during the first two full weeks of December, but we will not be making a collection and Santa will not be able to stop and talk to the children – this is obviously dependant on the restrictions in place at the time. If you want to know if we will be able to come round and when we will be in your area take a look at our website   or “like” us on Facebook to receive regular updates.   

As well as signalling the start of Christmas, Bishop’s Waltham Rotary Club raises significant funds from the door to door collections so that we can support many charities both local, national, and international. Unfortunately, there is still a need, most certainly a greater need this year, and because of this we still need to raise funds to be able to help out.

If you would like to donate to help us, especially with Roger the Engine in mind, you can donate via our website using the Paypal “Donate” button at the top of this page, or you can text ROGER followed by a number 70085 to donate that number in pounds i.e. ROGER 5 – will donate £5. 
Texts cost the value of the donation, plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to donate, but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text ROGERNOINFO followed by the amount you would like to donate to 70085.

We have been asked when and where is Roger going to be

We have been asked when is Roger coming round. Well, the dates and routes are below. Sadly we will not be able to stop but we wanted to bring you some Christmas cheer. As we are unable to stop our fundraising will be affected. If you do donate usually and would still like to this year please see further up this page or towards the bottom, thank you
