Every year we dust off Rudolf and the sleigh, wake up Santa, and go round every town and village in this area, weather permitting. While children get a chance to greet Santa and his Elf, we knock on every door to give everyone an opportunity to make a donation to our charity funds. Every contribution, no matter how small, is very gratefully received. You can see where your donations go by visiting our website (look for Rotary Club of Tywyn) or look out for our announcements on our Facebook page. Last year your donations during Santa’s rounds totalled £2200 – an astonishing amount for the number of people living locally. We thank you very much indeed for your generosity.
Since its founding in 1984 The Rotary Club of Tywyn has been making an impact on communities locally and internationally. Through volunteering their skills, time and resources, our members make a positive difference to the lives of others. Rotary Clubs work tirelessly to raise funds for local good causes, placing them right at the heart of their local communities. Our projects include organising and supervising community events, promoting the achievements of young people, helping those who are disadvantaged or disabled, coordinating educational programmes and working in partnership with local businesses and charities. Although the Tywyn Club is a relatively small one with 21 members, its fund raising, and therefore its charity donations, are considerable for such a small club, thanks largely to its Race the Train event, the first and still the largest of its kind in the UK.
