Collecting with the Rotary Club... and Santa!

Canterbury Food Bank volunteers joined in with the Rotary Club’s annual Santa tour around the streets of the city this December. The Rotary Club kindly offered to donate the collection to Canterbury Food Bank.

A number of Food Bank volunteers took part; some enjoyed it so much that they volunteered for extra shifts!

Canterbury Food Bank Director Chrissie Barr says: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Rotary Club this Christmas. It was a very enjoyable experience despite the cold weather and Canterbury residents were so generous, donating both food and money. It was lovely seeing the delighted faces of the children as they watched the arrival of Santa in his brightly-lit sleigh in their street to the accompaniment of loud Christmas music!”
