Christmas & New Year Charity Collection

Since 1970, Cranleigh Rotary has supported many local, national and international charities through various activities and events. One of our annual events is the Christmas and New Year Fundraising Appeal, which for 2021 was a street collection carried out by Club members in Cranleigh High Street on 17 and 18 December.
Because of the challenging Covid situation it was not possible to fully carry out the Christmas Street Collection as the Club would have wished.

"Despite the various limitations imposed, the street collection resulted in over £500 being raised - an excellent achievement in the circumstances. Many thanks and congratulations to everyone who made it possible," said Rotarian Andy Kolmar.

The associated Just Giving page raised a further amount of £187.50. 
The charities to benefit from the appeal will be the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and the Afghan Crisis Appeal, following a year that, for different reasons, has been very challenging for both of them.
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care provides supportive and end-of-life care to adult patients and their families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness in West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire. Every day the service supports nearly 300 patients, carers and relatives at the Hospice, out in the community or in the patients' own home.

The Afghan Crisis Appeal is funding the work of Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Afghanistan. MSF is delivering life-saving medical care to people caught in the Afghanistan crisis. MSF is currently running five projects, including hospitals, in some of the largest cities to provide both emergency and everyday medical care. Medical teams act fast to save peoples lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics. MSF go where they are needed most.

In order for both these charities to continue with their work your support is needed more than ever before.
