Peter Clark has taken over as chair of our Foundation & International Committee in 2016/17.  

The committee aims to support the Foundation (increase giving, support Scholar programmes, final push on polio eradication), implementing projects with partners and/or district grants, and arrange for social activities (Barn Dance) for club members. 

2016/17 Plans include promoting regular giving to Foundation; encouraging club support at the Peace Conference in Oxford on 10th September 2016 and financial support for Polio Plus. 

We want to provide support for Yaws eradication (£1000), Creating Better Futures (£3000 including 50% district grant), Practical Action (£1000) hopefully for project in Asia. 

Subject to available funding the committee would also hope the club might support Shelterbox (£590) and Life Straws (£600). 

The committee intends to assist with club speakers, organise one fund raising event (probably a Barn Dance), and organise a 5th Wednesday event (probably a Nepalese meal). Budget included raising £1250 with Barn Dance & Polio Walk; £2750 high priority from club funds (Polio, Yaws & CBF) and £2190 desirable (if available) for Practical Action, Shelterbox and Life Straws.
