Pudding Presentation

On 10 December Witham Rotary presented five Rotary Christmas Puddings to Karen at the Witham Lunch Club.  Elsewhere, proceeds  from sales of the puddings supports research into prostrate cancer.  The photo shows Rotarians Brian Olley (left) and John Mellerio with Karen Dillane at the pudding handover.



Wednesday 24 October was World End Polio Day and all Rotary Clubs were  asked to mark the day with a special event using purple, purple being the polio eradication programme theme colour.  Witham Rotary arranged to floodlight St Nicolas Church with purple light for the evening, as the photo below shows.
Purple St Nicolas


The Community Day in the Park (Saturday 09 June 2018) saw our gazebo in use along with Guess the Number of Ducks in the Bucket and the sale of Duck Race tickets.  Weather was fine and we thought the day was a useful publicity event.




For over sixty years the Rotary Club of Witham has been supporting local, national and international charities.

Recently the Club has supported the Boys BrigadeBrainwave, Essex Air Ambulance, St John Ambulance, Home StartShelter Box and the International Red Cross,  as well a dozen other local charities.  Also, every junior school pupil receives a dictionary in year 5.  


Here is a picture of pupils at Templars School , November 2017, showing off their  dictionaries.

Funds are raised in many ways.  People in Witham know about Santa and his sleigh and its tour round the town just before Christmas collecting for the charities the Club supports.  There is also the duck race, seen at the start,  below, in Bridge Street, on Carnival Day.

So funds come from events like steet collections, sponsored walks, hot chestnut sales and so on.  Keep an eye on the Charity Window in Richards Funeral Services in Newland Street for the latest details on all Witham
