The Rotarians of Sturminster Newton, Dorset, have been busy fundraising for CLIC Sargent over the last year, donating £4,000 to support our work with children and young people with cancer.

Sturminster Newton Rotary Club donate a staggering £4,000

How did they do it?

The funds raised by this hardworking Rotary group were mainly from its fantastic Santa Stride. In December, the town was a sea of red and white as 425 men, women, children and horses got into the festive spirit to raise £2,800.

The group also worked hard to raise funds at the annual Cheese Festival and other activities throughout the year, reaching a total of £4,000.

The cheque was presented by the Club President Mike Wood, along with members of the Santa Stride Committee; John Dimmer, Phil Mahoney and Des O’Connor.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell said: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Sturminster Newton community. Not only have the Rotarians worked hard to make such a fantastic donation, but they have really helped to raise vital awareness about our work in the area.

“This active Rotary Club has really made a difference to CLIC Sargent and we are looking forward to more events and activities in the future.”
