Chairman Chris Broad
This year we will again try to support international charities which reflect the six areas of concern highlighted by Rotary:-
Peace and conflict resolution
Disease prevention and control
Water and sanitation
Maternal welfare and healthcare
Basic education and literacy
Economic and community development
The Polio Plus campaign will continue and our target this year is to raise £500
Work will continue to research and plan a 'hands on' project in Gambia in November. A number of members of our club and others in the district are involved and we have already started fund raising for materials.
We have applied for a grant for furniture for the Lady Forester Day Care Centre and this is due shortly.
We will be applying for other grants during the year.
- We will investigate a potential global grant to assist Village Warer in Mozambique
- A part global grant with a London district to aid street children in Sierra Leone
