Remembrance Sunday 2016 at Hornsea

Once again the Rotary Club of Hornsea has come to the aid of the local British Legion Poppy Appeal, distributing many boxes surrounding Hornsea and East Riding. A total of £7394 collected in Hornsea Tesco alone!

We are also very active in helping marshalling for the Remembrance Service parade in the town, a function that allows the Club a great deal of publicity but, more importantly, involves us with a tremendously important part of the local town activities.

As a Club, we consider this alliance to be of considerable importance and hope that it will grow and has become a permanent part of our Rotary Calendar year.
