Grantham Journal letter: Mistaken identity - Rotarians do not take Santa on tour

Have your say

In response to a letter from Barbara Rowlandson in the Journal of December 19, can I point out that neither of the town Rotary clubs were involved in a Santa float this year.

I can only assume that she has confused Rotary with another service organisation in town.

People are well aware that both clubs – the Rotary Club of Grantham and the Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven – do a great deal of voluntary work in the local community.

My club’s next big event is the annual Swimarathon which is held February 6-8, and raises in excess of £40,000, almost all of which goes to local charities.
