OUR FUND RAISING EFFORTS - WHY?
EVERY PENNY WE RAISE FOR CHARITY WILL BE GIVEN TO CHARITY - THERE IS NO SKIMMING OR TOP-SLICING.
Some people think of Rotary as simply a fund raising organisation. Two years ago, when we were 'rattling tins' in front of Mirfield Coop one person asked: 'is this all that you do?'
Of course we do rattle tins - occasionally. But we also do other things to raise funds. Why do we raise funds?
Last year we donated £2500 to Kirkwood Hospice and £2000 to Phoenix House (Help for Heroes).
The money we raised also helped us to support a Young Chef competition, send two young people to a leadership training course, help Matrix and the Salvation Army. We also provided water and sanitation to the people of Kerala in India, and a waiting hostel for pregnant women in Tanzania.
Rotary is proud that every penny raised for charity is used for charitable purpose. There is no top-slicing or skimming of money we raise. So, if you want 100% of your money to go to someone in need then Rotary is the channel.
We are currently running a raffle. We've been selling tickets at various locations - including Asda in Fixby (photo).
