Local Projects 

The Christchurch Rotary Living Advent Calendar is an annual December event, launched in 2021. It is organised by Christchurch Rotary Club and supported by Christchurch Town Council and BCP Council.

Taking the lead from the advent calendars we know and love, there are pop-up events in the town for 24 days from 1-24 December. Christchurch Rotary reveals a local musical act on the night, just like we open the window on our calendar to reveal a special surprise. Not only does the audience get a treat, so do local charities; each event being sponsored by a local firm that will hand over a cheque on the night for at least £500. In 2021, between sponsorship and the generosity of the Christchurch residents and visitors, Rotary raised £20,000 which went directly to the participating charities. In 2022 a further amount in excess of £21,000 has been raised, in spite of freezing weather & competition from a certain World Cup … & we are hoping to raise even more in December 2023 !

Supermarket Collections in Aid of Local Charities

Every year Christchurch Rotary run collections in local supermarkets in aid of local worthy causes.

In  December 2022 collections were held in Waitrose & Sainsburys, raising £2,000 to be shared equally between Macmillan Caring Locally, Christchurch Support Kabin  (formerly Christchurch Soup Kitchen) , the Water Lilly Project & the Rotary Charity account.

Not content with this, Christchurch rotarians were out again in Waitrose in January collecting food & donations for the Christchurch Food Bank, collecting a staggering 748 Kilos of food & £105.23 !
