Highcliffe School teachers, joined Rotary members at the Club night at Hoburne Bashley to promote Friends of Highcliffe School's Winter Fair on Saturday 3rd December.


"We are raising money to go towards providing much needed rain shelters around the school site for our students. The Winter Fair is open to all and we hope it will become an annual event for the local community to enjoy. We will have festive crafts, a photobooth, entertainment, refreshments and a Santa’s grotto, as well as a fantastic raffle and bidding wall.

 We are particularly keen to welcome local residents and members of the wider community to our event, it would be lovely to see you there!"

Kerry Gooding and Jo Harding Harding

It is our aim to bring a little ray of sunshine into the lives of disadvantaged children every Christmas.  The Rotary Shoebox Scheme has been running since the 1990's and draws together local communities, who prepare gifts of shoeboxes containing toys, toiletries, educational items or household goods for impoverished people of Eastern Europe.  Dedicated members, checking and sorting donated boxes for distribution on 12th November are hoping to exceed last years record number of 765 boxes.
