Foundation committee 2018 - 2019
Chair Rachel Dunford,
The Rotary Foundation is a worldwide charity into which money is donated and pooled. This money is then available to be used for long term projects worldwide. This may include building wells, or saving water, in drought stricken areas, the building of hospitals, or schools where there are none, helping to finance self-help groups such as localised banking schemes.
The committee is responsible for the raising of monies to send to the Foundation to fund these projects.
'Foundation Feeds' dinner parties are held at peoples houses where the member provides the food and wine, the guests pay a contribution to the Foundation such as they would if eating at a restaurant.
'3Ps for 2Ps' events; 'Ploughmans, Pimms, and Puddings, for Polio Plus', raise money to assist in the eradication of Polio worldwide.
We will continue to have these fun events, raising finances to fund fantastic projects.
In addition to these long standing events, we are holding a new event this year; a race night to raise funds foe foundation, and for the Life education charity. This will be in March to coincide with St Patrick's day.
