The Haddenham & District Rotary Club organises Santa's Grotto at Haddenham Garden Centre in the weeks running up to Christmas, and this seasonal delight is a very popular attraction for local youngsters.

The Garden Centre very generously provides the gifts that Santa hands out, and the admission charge goes to the Rotary Club's fundraising efforts for its nominated charities.

On Wednesday 1st February, a cheque was presented by Kate Hawkins from Haddenham Garden Centre to representatives of the Rotary Club.
