Year to June 2017

During the year up to end of June 2017 funds were raised for a wide range of causes.

The Rotary Club of Elgin would like to thank local businesses and the public for their ongoing support.  Not only did they attend and participate in the many Rotary Community Events such as Marafun, Bothy Ballads and the Bonfire and Fireworks Display but through their generous support we were able to distribute over £40,858 to 37 good causes in the year to the end of June.

Local individuals, charities, national charities and international causes all benefitted from your support.

In summary:                               

  • £12,205 was distributed to 22 local charities and organisations.  This included £7,000 shared between 6 local charities from the Rotary Christmas Collections.
  • £1,150 to 5 National Charities and Projects.
  • £16,830 to the Nepal Water Project (Elgin Club’s International project).
  • £1,475 to 5 International projects. 
  • £2,000 for emergency aid in Haiti, East Africa and for the Barra Appeal (Manchester attack).
  • £7,198 was raised for Rotary’s own charity – the Rotary Foundation, to enable that Charity to continue its’ charitable work including the eradication of Polio

We now wait to find out how much was raised from Marafun and this will be announced in November when we share the total amongst 100 local charities and organisations.
