Sitting with Jane

Explaining why Basingstoke Deane Rotary Club is pleased to be one of the Bookbench sponsors, President Alan Gibson said:

“The Basingstoke Deane Rotarians are at the heart of the local community, and our club has a proud track record of supporting local good causes and important projects. Sitting With Jane is an exciting cultural, educational and legacy initiative that will ultimately benefit Ark Cancer Centre Charity – one of the local charities that the Rotary Club is delighted to support – through the proceeds that are raised when the Bookbenches are auctioned. Sitting With Jane is also a great opportunity to raise wider public awareness of what the Rotary Club does, and to show potential members how Rotarians have fun and make a positive difference.”
