It was a race to the finish line at the annual Reindeer Race in the Nicholsons Centre on Saturday.
Organised by Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club for the fifth year running, the festive, fun-filled event pulled in the crowds to watch competitors wind toy reindeers and sleighs across the finishing line.
Races lasted approximately 5 minutes each and brought lots of laughter and fun to the masses. Shoppers also go to meet Bruno and Patch, mascots from the charity Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, where all money raised at the event will be donated. Lisa Hunter, Rotarian, commented, “The dog mascots definitely help to pull in the crowds and to see the joy on children’s faces as they rush to give them a hug is priceless”.
“Thank you to the generosity of shoppers the day raised over £225 for the charity, which we are thrilled about”, she continued.

It doesn't cost you a penny extra! When you shop the easyfundraising way with one of our 3,280 shops and sites they give us a commission for your purchase. We turn that into a donation and give it to your good cause. Easy!
Using easyfundraising is just about the simplest way to raise money for your good cause. If you’re wondering what it’s all about, read on…
How does easyfundraising work?We work with over 2000 retailers who have all agreed to pass a donation to your cause when you shop with them. The donation is usually a percentage of how much you spend with them but it can also be a set amount, such as £30 for a new car insurance policy from Aviva. Our retailers include Amazon, M&S, Boden, John Lewis, Argos and 2000 other well known names.
What do you need to do to raise money?Firstly register with us and tell us who you want to support (www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/rotaryclubmaid). It’s free for both shoppers and causes to register and use.
To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause gets a donation. It really is that simple.
What’s the catch?No catch. Whatever you buy costs exactly the same as it would if you visited the retailer site directly. We don’t take any financial information from you as all your transactions are with the retailer. We won’t sell your information on and we won’t spam you. And it doesn’t cost you or your cause anything.
How do the causes get the donations?Every three months we total up how much the supporters of each cause have raised and providing it is over £15, we send the cause a cheque. If the amount raised is less than £15, we just carry it forward to the next cheque-run.
