The Rotary Club of Tottington & Bury West administers a Charity Trust Fund, Registered Charity

No. 1047285

Our BLEED BOX CAMPAIGN is aiming to install emergency bleed packs all around the Metropolitan Borough (e.g. in Silver Street Bury ). Other local Rotary Clubs have joined us together with Bury Lions and other local organisations. We have recently received the magnificent sum of £7500 from Bury Lions towards more boxes. Many thanks to them!

The  "WRAP UP BURY" coat collection took place again this year, and several hundred coats were distributed to homeless and other needy persons. A big thank you to our collection hubs and all who provided coats.

The POPPY APPEAL in Tesco Woodfields was extremely sucessful again this year. We think nearly everybody in Bury bought a poppy!

THE CHRISTMAS FLOAT, is now complete for another year. Many thanks to all our generous general public, also we are grateful to other people and organisations who have helped us this year with Santa, driving and collectors. We couldn't do it without you! Together with the collection in Market Street Tottington, £6700 was raised.

This year at Tesco Woodfields we brought a Santa Grotto instead of just collecting. Thank you Wendy Howarth and all the helpful staff at Tesco. £731 was raised in the two days.

The SQUARE STREET SINGERS SPECTACULAR at St John's Church was very successful again this year. Many thanks to this wonderful choir (and Alpine Horn players!) and to Rev Anthony for the use of the Church.

Some of us are also helping at Tottington Centre with the voluntary library service which replaced that relinquished by the local council in December 2017. The library is open, Mondays to Fridays from 10.00 am to 5 pm (plus Saturday mornings 10-1). There is also a cafe: hours as library, except 10-4 pm weekdays. Rooms are available for hire and there are several activity groups for children and adults.

With much help from Tottington Primary School Year 5, we are continuing our project to develop Whitehead Gardens, Tottington. Eventually, we hope to have a pleasanter park to visit and to make it part of a Tottington History Trail. This small park is a Memorial to those killed by a bomb in WWII at the site. Now we have secured pump funding, Proffitts are looking for extensive funding and have produced  plans. Planning permission has now been granted, so watch this space!

Over the last year or so we have donated to, or hosted/assisted at, the following:

British Legion Poppy Appeal at Tesco Woodfields, Various local charities with coats from our "Wrap Up Bury" appeal, the Bleed Box Campaign, a Christmas party for adult Carers, Kids Out for Young Carers, Elms Bank School, assisting a local scout going to an international Scout Jamboree, Bolton Road Food Pantry, Brandlesholme Community Food Bank, Seedfield Football Club, Francis House and Derian House Children's Hospices,  Bowel Babe Fund, UK Sepsis Trust, St John's Tottington and Four Lane Ends Chapel, The Attic Project, Freedom4Girls,  Rotary Shoe Boxes, Life Water, Mary's Meals, Mercy Ships, LendwithCare, Disaster Aid UK for Ukraine Generators and Rotary Foundation (Rotary International's own Charity, which includes Polio Plus)

Note that most of our donations are raised via our Christmas Float and collections from our very generous General Public.

We have recently sorted Rotary Shoeboxes at the Warehouse in Royton, Oldham. On some Friday mornings.

Our Daffodil planting this year was along the road at Greenmount Cricket Club

Note the Spring daffodils along much of Brandlesholme and Longsight Roads are mainly the result of Club plantings over many years.
