District Grant Support for Penrose Judo Club - Persistence pays off!

In 2017 we applied for and were successful in getting a matching District Grant to help Penrose Judo Club instal a disabled toilet. They have been working at it ever since and overcoming lots of obstacles finally achieving the aim. Well done guys and pleased to have helped out.
Dear Ian
I cannot tell you how grateful we were to receive £1,000 from you towards our disabled toilet/access build at the hall. I am now pleased to confirm that these works have been completed.
The disabled toilet build did take longer than expected partly because we were sourcing funding from other agencies but work finally began in August last year. There were a number of issues with the project from the beginning with a soakaway in the car park at the rear which had been installed previously incorrectly and had to be replaced as well as pipe work for the drainage. We have also had to work with uneven walls and a significant drop off at the rear where the disabled toilet was going to be built. Despite these hiccups and with the support from the community, the build was pretty much completed prior to the lockdown apart from decoration and meeting compliance with regard to electrics etc which has now taken place.
We thought you would like to see the finished article so I have attached a selection of photos from start to finish.
It is our intention to have an official opening ceremony but under current circumstances, this is not possible or permissible at present.
Once again, on behalf of Penrose Judo Club, our sincere thanks for the support you have shown us with this community venture.
Kind regards

Richard Hurst - Head Coach/Sue Bennett - Secretary

Cober Valley - Covid 19

As with many clubs we have had to change our routine during the ongoing pandemic, nevertheless we are still a very active and vibrant Rotary Club still making a difference for the good in our community and further afield.  During lock down we received a grant from Ebay of over £3,500 - Thank you EBay!!  This enabled us to pass on funds to President Caroline's year charities Truro Samaritans and ShelterBox.

For the time being all our meetings will be by Zoom or in the open air!

Kids Out Surplus Funds used to Support Local Childrens Hostel

After our successful 12 Club collaboration for Kids Out event in June we had some surplus funds. So responding to a request for support it was agreed to use it to help out a small children’s home called Roston that supports younger children. We helped to fund some planting out in the gardens and provide a swing. They sent a thank you letter back to us and the other clubs that helped out. #proudtoberotary.
