Christmas Collections 2023

Monday December 4th — Tuesday December 19th 2023
17:00 to 19:45 (approx)

We are pleased to announce that Santa will once agaim be visiting the streets of Folkestone on his sleigh.

As last year, Santa's elves will be able to receive donations to our Christmas appeal via contactless payments as well as cash, so please be as generous as possible to help us to provide a little good cheer for those in need in our district.

Please note that we make every endeavour to cover all the streets listed below, but circumstances may arise where routes need to be amended at very short notice (even during the collection itself) and areas omitted. The Rotary Club of Folkestone apologises for any inconvenience or disppointment this may cause.
