Santa Sleigh collections - 2020

The Rotary Club of Kelvedon & District would like to thank everyone for the very warm welcome given to our Santa's sleigh collections this year. Santa, Rudolf and all the elf collectors had been preparing for this since the summer, knowing that it might be cancelled at the last moment, and they were really pleased it was allowed to go ahead. They were all delighted by the messages of appreciation and that so many came out to see Santa, even when the weather was a bit damp. We have not yet had time to count all the money that was collected but we were overwhelmed by the generosity shown by the village communities. All the money goes into our charity account and enables us to support deserving causes both locally and internationally.
Thanks once again and our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The COVID-19 Emergency: Rotary doing its bit!

Like many other clubs and societies Kelvedon & District Rotary Club has had to suspend regular meetings, but to keep members in touch with one another and in an endeavor to continue its charitable and community work the Rotary club has been holding “virtual meetings” using the medium of Zoom technology. 

At its “virtual meeting” on 28 April participants were joined by Braintree District Councillors Jenny Sandum and Paul Thorogood who gave a presentation on their work with the Kelvedon & Feering COVID Support Group. This group of volunteers are assisting self-isolating members of the community and other housebound residents who require assistance with food purchases, shopping and prescription collections. 

In response, the club agreed to provide an initial sum of £200 to the Kelvedon & Feering COVID Support Group with similar cash sums going to the Braintree & Colchester Food Banks and to Tolleshunt Knights & Tiptree P.C.O. St Luke’s Church under the auspices of the Rev. Anne-Marie Renshaw. 

Another example of Rotary in action.

Kelvedon and District Rotary Club is a mixed club of 28 members. We meet every Tuesday at 6.45 for a 7:00pm dinner at the The Blue Anchor Feering, just off the A12 west of Colchester. We always welcome visiting Rotarians, or people interested in joining. Call our Attendance Officer Les Turner on 01206 865651 or Club Secretary Ken Aldred on 01206 751397.
