Show related pages


The President’s Charity

Our President serves for one year and in that year, will nominate one or more Rotary Projects, Causes or Programmes to be the main beneficiaries of our fund-raising events

Rotary members will usually also vote to support an additional number of local community initiatives 

It is our practice to hold an Invitation Evening each autumn during which presentations are made to our chosen organisations and representatives are invited to speak to share their experiences 

In 2019-20, we will give support to:

AYLESBURY HOMELESS ACTION GROUP (AHAG)

AHAG support anyone over 18 years of age who is homeless or inadequately housed, by supplying clients with up-to-date information, advice and support which enables them to make informed choices and find a home

STOKE MANDEVILLE CHILDREN'S WARD: PAEDIATRIC DECISION UNIT (PDU)

Stoke Mandeville Hospital is the trauma centre for the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust and the Paediatric Decision Unit (PDU) admits GP referrals and provides urgent and emergency care to children and young people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

PDU is adjacent to the hospital’s main A&E department with dedicated triage and assessment facilities and in 2018 saw around 27,000 children and young people

A PDU Experience:
“Following a referral from a GP we took our young baby into the Paediatric Decision Unit. The team were great in how they met and treated us, quickly diagnosing the problem, explaining the next steps clearly and subsequently liaising effectively with the Children’s Ward when we had to stay overnight

Our baby was transferred to another hospital for surgery which took time to arrange but we were kept informed all the way through and the transfer was done very quickly by a fantastic ambulance crew

We dealt with many staff, all were brilliant, and we are hugely grateful to PDU and the children’s ward. When it really mattered for a very young child, the hospital really delivered”


TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA ASSOCIATION

TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA (TN) is an extremely severe unilateral episodic facial pain that tends to come and go unpredictably in sudden shock-like attacks

The pain is normally triggered, for example by light touch and is described as stabbing, shooting, excruciating or burning sensations. It usually lasts for a few seconds but there can be many bursts of pain in quick succession. There can be slight variations of trigeminal neuralgia which require different treatments

The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK provide information, support and encouragement to those who suffer this excruciatingly painful condition. Our aim is to raise awareness of TN within the medical community and the general public at large

TNA UK is a registered charity and entirely dependent on donations and annual membership fees in order to continue its work. We receive no funding whatsoever from central government or corporate organisations
