Fundraising

Support locally and internationally

There is no separate fundraising committee but that does not mean the club is no longer raising money for good causes. On the contrary, in recent months Chelmsford has distributed donations to more local organisations than ever before as we'll as continuing to support international projects.

Danbury jumble sales

Our fundraising efforts include annual jumble sales in Danbury. The pictures below show Past President Graham Furnival getting things prepared and Past President Philip Goodman ready to welcome potential buyers. Both look resplendent in their Club fleeces.

Climbing the O2

Our members also take part in fund-raising activities by the wider Rotary community. Our Secretary, Eddie Casses, for example, joined a team of Rotarians from all over the country to scale the O2 Dome in London to celebrate Rotary’s 110th birthday. He raised funds for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign and Walk for Water, which helps provide clean water for children in Africa.
