Following the loosening of Covid restrictions, lunches resumed at the Bush Hotel from 12 August 2021.
The hotel requires early booking of all places and menu choices for our weekly lunches and the deadline for bookings is 9am on Mondays. Visitors are welcome -- please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or our lunch secretary at email@example.com in good time to reserve your meal.
From fundraising around Christmas 2020, our club sent £500 to Woodlarks Centre and £500 to Bells Piece plus £200 to the Hygiene Bank to suport their activities in the Farnham area. In total we donated over £7,000 to local and international charitable causes during the year to June 2021. These funds were raised through members' voluntary donations and the limited fundraising activities possible during Covid restrictions, including quizzes and raffles.
Jacqui Thomas will be attempting a 33-mile sponsored walk around the Isle of Wight on 10 May to raise money for Ukraine. Members and friends are invited to sponsor Jacqui by making donations to the Benevolent Fund mentioning 'Jacqui Walk' (Rotary Club of Farnham Benevolent Fund, Lloyds Bank Farnham, Sort Code 30-93-20, Account 01082403).
