Supporting Others in the Community
Supporting other organisations in the community is an important aspect of the Club. Tis certificate of appreciation was received from the Friends of Pontprennau Primary School Association (FoPPS), following the club's sponsorship and support.
The Club supported their charity Race Evening held on 19th May 2018 at their school. Rotarian's Philip Nicholls and Julian Johns ran the event, and made a profit of over £1300 for the schools fundraising fund for a 17 seater Mini Bus for their special needs children.
The certificate was presented to President Geraint by PP Philip who is also the Chairman for the Association at Pontprennau Primary School.
Associate Sue Ford helps out at the Cardiff Riding Stables with some of the funds raised at the Rhiwbina Festival.
Sue states "My daughter Sophie rides at Cardiff Riding Stables in Pontcanna, where I am also a Friend. So when I realised that the 3 Riding for the Disabled (RDA) groups who use the Riding School were in need of some equipment and toys to make riding more fun for their participants, it naturally followed that I would try to use some of the funds raised for Rotary to help make riding more fun for the RDA riders. It is the only Stables within a 10 mile radius of Cardiff to provide facilities and lessons to disabled riders" . # S
