|Annual Christmas collections
Aberystwyth Rotarians are out on the streets again this year with collections on the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th of December in Morrison's, the 12th in CK's and the 19th, 20th and 21st in Owain Glyndwr Square. This year's headline local charities are Marie Curie Cancer Care, MIND and Ceredigion Young Carers. In addition a contribution goes every year to fund our Kid's Out initiative. Other smaller donations will be considered in the new year once we know the total available.
So if you have views on what should be considered, our members would be happy to hear them and are always ready to exchange the season's greetings.

The Club, in association with L'Armoire of Llanidloes, held a Fashion Show at The Marine Hotel to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. With over 200 tickets sold, the evening raised a total of £2,756 including a Matched Funding contribution of £750 from Barclays Bank.
The Rotarians donned their Dinner Jackets to add to the fun of the evening, some being persuaded to join the models on the catwalk! Local businesses kindly gave raffle prizes and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre provided the staging for the catwalk.The Show took place on a beautiful late September evening and was enjoyed by all.
