Rotary Club update
Charity Golf Day
The Charity Golf day run jointly between the Holsworthy Rotary Club and the Torrington Club at the Holsworthy Golf Club was a huge success, our share of the proceeds amounted to £3,535.00 and from this we have donated £2535.00 to The North Devon Hospice. We give a special thank you to all the people and businesses that generously supported the event.
Know Your Blood Pressure
Our stand at The North Devon Show where we offered a free blood pressure check to anyone was very successful, 128 people had their BP checked during the day. A special thank you to the nurses that carried out the measurements and gave their time free of charge. We think that there is a need to expand this to encompass other areas of health care in the future.
During the Rotary year 2017/18 we gave grants and donations totalling £13,500. These included £5,000 to The Children’s Hospice South West, £200 to Marland School, £250 towards the Air Ambulance landing lights, £250 Town Hall project, £300 towards the defibrillator at the Golf Club, £818.00 to the Food Bank, £1267.00 to Shelter Box, plus many small donations to individuals.
