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. The 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. We welcome any ideas that you may have.

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 600 coats from our "Wrap Up Bury" appeal, It's Time4Change, a Christmas party for adult Carers, Kids Out and Christmas Toy box appeal for Young Carers, Rotary Foundation (including sale of crocus bulbs for Polio Plus), Bury Hospice, Francis House and Derian House Children's Hospices,  Brandlesholme Community Centre (for local food aid etc), Broughton House, Asthma UK, Dogs Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Dreams Come True, UK Sepsis Trust, Mercy Ships, Mary's Meals, Indian Covid Equipment Appeal and Water Aid.

Recently money has been sent  to two Rotary Clubs in Romania and Moldova  to help those fleeing from Ukraine. The Food  Pantry at Bolton Road Methodist Church is now open; we  helped to eqip it with shelving and a freezer.
