CHARITIES SUPPORTED IN YEAR 2016 - 17
For our Christmas Collections this year Rotherham Rotary is supporting the three charities chosen by President John (see below) plus the Kiveton and South Rotherham Memory Cafe which we started in October 2016. We shall also support other local causes from our fundraising efforts during the year.
Our International Service Committee is also looking at another project to support in Africa, in conjunction with our twinned Clubs and other local Rotary Clubs.
Age UK Rotherham is an independent charity whose charitable objectives are to make the lives of older people in Rotherham as fulfilling and rewarding as possible. We are a truly local charity helping only older people in Rotherham. Each year we have to raise substantial funds to enable us to continue to support people to the level we do. To find out more about what we do please take a look around our website.
Rotherham Hospice is a way of caring for people both in the Hospice and the community. Our care places the patient and not the illness at the centre of everything we do. We are an independent charity and the only adult hospice in Rotherham for the people of Rotherham and surrounding villages. We began offering Day Hospice services in 1994, and have grown over the years to now provide a 14 bed Inpatient Unit, with 75 Day Hospice places every week, and our Hospice Community Team who provide care in the community. We need over £4 million annually to deliver these services and rely heavily upon local people and organisations for their support.
Shiloh is a Christian Charity that aims to help adults in the locality of Rotherham living in poverty, transition, oppression and homelessness to rebuild their lives, by providing food, support and necessary information to enable them to connect with health, housing and hope.
Founded in 1992 to provide a place of rest, Shiloh is a Christian drop-in centre open three days a week as a sanctuary for the marginalised of society over 18. The name Shiloh comes from the Bible and is a place of refuge. We provide compassion and dignity including facilities for washing, showering and laundry and can connect guests to other support services enabling them to make better choices for an independent life. We welcome guests and volunteers regardless of their beliefs.
Shiloh has progressed from the early days of serving soup and sandwiches on the streets to occupying well equipped premises, which also include a bedroom. When Shiloh closed briefly, the local police reported a significant increase in anti-social and criminal activity.
The charity is run by Trustees and receives no major funding other than official Council Tax relief. It iss thanks to a group of dedicated donors (mainly anonymous), that the doors stay open so that God's light might be shone in dark circumstances. Your support is much appreciated.
