The Flood Appeal Show
More news from Rotary
The Rotary Club of Staines is once again repeating its annual programme to donate a copy of the Usborne Illustrated Dictionary to the current Year 5 pupils in the schools in Staines and Laleham.
The presentations have been made at schools with a Year 5, with every pupil in the year receiving a copy of the dictionary. This is an appealing and highly informative book, with full colour illustrations, which is hoped, will prove to be a great hit with the children.
The club has raised thousands of pounds for charities and good causes over the years, and its members give freely of their time and effort to help many organisations.
A number of local charities have benefited from donations made by the club, including Daybreak, Home-Start, the Spelthorne MS Society, the Staines Parochial Charities, the Surrey Community Development Trust and Voluntary Action in Spelthorne (VAIS).
The club also has a strong international flavour being twinned with the Rotary Club of Melun Vicomté near Paris. Just recently the clubs gave another donation to the international charity Espoir de Demain. The charity’s main objective is to help orphans and vulnerable children in Porto Novo in Benin to go to school or in some cases to do an apprenticeship, and to receive needed psychological and social support.
