Thank you to everyone who supported the event. Hope to see you all again next year.
We were pleased to welcome Rtn. Jed Brooks, our District Governor, for his official Club visit last night. Jed was welcomed to Club by our President Rtn. John Clarke.
That is the end of the donation hub. One Ford lorry load went at 10.30 filled to the brim. The next and final load went at 12.30.
This community filled a total of five vehicles! Well done to everyone – volunteers, the Canvey community and the wider community for your donations, Castlepoint Council for the use of the shop and Ford Motor Company for handling the logistics.
Not only did we send boxed donations but the community donated £685. We will purchase a shelter box for a family of eight, an additional water filtration plant and an additional cooking pan set on your behalf.gistics.
Our Club welcomed Kevin & Heather Geeson representing Essex & Herts Air Ambulance to our meeting on Tuesday night to receive a donation of £500 from our funds to help continue the life saving work of the organisation.
On Sunday 4th September, Rotarian John Clarke, President of The Rotary Club of Canvey Island, welcomed everyone to their " T By The Sea " held at the Band Stand on Canvey seafront. The free event, organised by Rotarians Sue Hampson & Tony Clarke, had been an annual event until Covid came along.
Now, after a three year break, we made a return, with the sun shining to help make a very successful afternoon, with a few hundred people sitting on the grass of the seawall and around the Band stand area, whilst enjoying the entertainment from the bands.
The Club gives thanks to Canvey Island Town Council for the use of the Band Stand and to Derek & Suzanne Gray from 'Jimmy Mac's ' who supplied power for the bands, as there is none actually connected to the Band Stand.
We recently held the Clubs annual Charity Golf Day with 15 teams competing. The event was held at the Warley Park Golf Club and was won by Richard Bond, a Warley Park member with 40 points. At the 18th hole there was a competition to beat the Pro. which was won by our member Tony Clarke. The event raised £1,300 for charity. We would like to thank Warley Park Golf Club and their President Rotarian David Datson for organising the event.
