SHOEBOX APPEAL

The Club, with the Grantham Journal, has again supported the Rotary ShoeBox appeal. Thank you to everyone who has helped us provide over 1,000 Boxes to those in need in Eastern Europe.

 

CHARITY GOLF DAY

.

The Charity Golf Day is an Annual event at which funds are raised to support the President’s chosen charity and other good causes in the Grantham area. The next Charity Golf Day is Thursday 13th June 2018. Details are on the Flyer. To enter please see the Invitation Letter and the Entry Form.

.

TRADE AID

.

Trade Aid provides Boxes of new tools and equipment that enable tradesmen to resume their trade after a disaster or youngsters to learn and start a business in areas where vocational training is not available. In its 10 year existence, over £500,000 has now been raised and over 1,000 boxes have been distributed to 35 countries, equipping over 28 training stations. To learn more please visit our Website and Facebook.

CHILDREN OF COURAGE

.

The Children of Courage Awards Lunch is an annual event at which awards are presented to Children who have faced life experiences of adversity and hardship with extraordinary courage, tenacity, and fortitude. We are pleased to honour these young people whose courage and achievements would otherwise go unrecognised by the wider community. See the latest, 2017, Children of Courage Awards on YouTube.
