JIGSAW FOODBANK RECEIVEs A FUNDING BOOST FROM ROTARY BAKEWELL
Following its latest on-line meeting, Rotary Bakewell wholeheartedly agreed to donate £500 to local charity, Jigsaw Food Bank.
The money will be used to purchase food items for distribution in local communities. Referrals to Jigsaw come from local organisations supporting families on a regular basis. Jigsaw then tailors its food donations using information from each referral.
Rotary Bakewell is delighted to have been able to offer its support to such a key support in these difficult times.
ROTARY BAKEWELL INCREASES AID TO JIGSAW FOOD BANK
Following an initial donation of £500, Rotary Bakewell is delighted to have been able to increase the funds available for local charity, JigSaw Foodbank, to £2000.
This amount, it is hoped will be able to provide much needed food parcels to families struggling in the current challenging times.

It goes without saying that COVID-19 and the resulting lockdown has been a challenge for young people. Many have felt frustrated at the lack of freedom they have had to socialise and release their inner energies and talents.
But some opportunities have come along which may pique their interest and with the summer break around the corner, these may be just the ticket for bored young minds!
Every year Rotary of Great Britain and Ireland (RGB+I) run competitions for young people in the age ranges 7-10, 11-13, 14-17 on several themes. This year, organised though the Rotary Bakewell, young people in our area are invited to enter for three such competitions – ‘Young Writer’, ‘Young Artist’ and ‘Young Photographer’.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
