Selected photos of recent presentations of typical donations to various charities
Every year we donate several thousand pounds to charities, local, national and international. Here are more pictures of recent donations to local charities.
The photo above shows Gerry Gould, Community Manager for Brainwave, receiving a cheque for £300 from President John and Publicity Chairman Brian in late August. Gerry Gould said, ‘It was a lovely surprise to receive this £300 cheque from the President and members of Witham Rotary Club. This donation will go towards enabling us to continue offering our therapy service to the children who have disabilities and additional needs that attend our Centre in Newland Street for therapy. Brainwave does not receive any Government funding and we are celebrating our 10 Anniversary of the opening of our Centre in Witham and the support offered to us over these 10 years by Witham Rotary Club is very much appreciated.'
In mid-May the Club donated a cheque for £300 to the Boys' Brigade at The Hub in the Newland Centre. In the photo above we see, back row, Rotary President Keith Harman,Christopher Adkins of the BB & Rotarian John Mellerio and in front Robert Ball, Ewan Anderson & Nicholas Robinson.
In March a cheque for £450 was handed to Grace Sullivan from Farleigh Hospice as part of the Club's long standing support for this charity. Above, President Keith Harman hands Grace the cheque with, from right to left, Rodney Cullum, Margaret Luptan, Jonathan Hodgkin and Roy Pipe.
