LOCAL CHARITIES APPEAL
After raising a huge amount of money for a sponsored SKY DIVE in 2019 in aid of Support Dogs, Rotarian Trevor Eastwood has now been challenged to do the INFINITY BRIDGE HIGH WIRE WALK 1000ft above the Honister Pass in the Lake District - the longest high wire walk in Europe! This will take place on Saturday 25th September 2021 at 1.30 pm.
The many charities that we support each year including Bury Hospice, Mencap and De-CaFF have all suffered greatly due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic!
PLEASE help us to support them by sponsoring Trevor and his daughters Tina and Tracy (who are also raising funds) to complete this challenge.
DONATIONS CAN BE MADE ONLINE AT gofund.me/45e537d3

Some of us are also helping at Tottington Centre with the voluntary library service to replace that relinquished by the local council in December 2017.
Following Covid lockdown the library is beginning to re-open, Mondays to Fridays from 10.00 am (plus Saturday mornings). The cafe will hopefully re-open soon under new management.
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. Now we have secured pump funding, Proffitts are looking for extensive funding and have produced early 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:
It's Time4Change, Christmas hampers for adult Carers, Kids Out and Christmas Toy box appeal for Young Carers, Mayor's Charity Appeal, 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,Sepsis Trust, Mercy Ships, Mary's Meals, Indian Covid Equipment Appeal and Water Aid.
