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.
