Penzance Rotary Club Serving Communities
Rotarians care about communities and today a delegation of Penzance Rotarians attended Pengarth Day Care Centre to see at first hand the invaluable service that the centre provides for the elderly people of Penzance and West Penwith.
The Rotary Club's recent Vintage & Classic Car Rally on Penzance Promenade raised funds for Penlee RNLI and for Pengarth Day Centre and the Club supplemented these finds with further monies raised through The Rotary Shop to enable the presentation of £600 to Pengarth Day Centre Trustee, Mr Eric Parton.
The Rotary Club of Penzance is registered with the Charity Commission. No. 1027839
