Each year Rotary awards Young Citizen certificates and prizes to Primary School pupils who have been identified by their school as deserving because their actions or activities show a concern for others that reflects the Rotary moto of "Service above Self".
Y Bont Faen Primary chose Rhys Griffiths and Emily Golunski who were presented their awards by Rotarian Bob Wilson at the end of term assembly. Rhys had made collections in his local area for the Ukranian appeal and also for the Turkish earthquake whilst Emily has a demanding carer role for her brother.
St Brides major CiW Primary chose Indti Jones as their Young Citizen who has worked hard to promote sustainability and support the school's work to become a plastic free accredited school. His award waspresented by Rotarian Huw Davies at the leaving assembly.
Well done both teams and quizmaster Gareth Rees.
A mighty £1260.00 donation is making its way to the Vale and Bridgend Food Banks following the success of the annual Cowbridge Rotary Raffle at the 2023 Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival.
Throughout the two-day Festival, Cowbridge Rotary volunteers encouraged visitors to dig deep and donate for this worthy cause, and a special ‘thank you’ goes to everyone who did just that, helping to raise much-needed funds to help those in need.
Celebrity Chef Christos Georgakis, extended a helping hand, agreeing to draw the raffle’s winning tickets, as crowds gathered hoping to win one of the three giant food, drink and gift hampers, so generously donated by the exhibitors at the Festival. And there was special interest in the chance to win the amazing first prize of a Kenwood Mixer, kindly donated by a Cowbridge Rotary supporter.
President of Cowbridge Rotary, Huw Davies, said “Cowbridge Rotary has been overwhelmed with the generosity of the exhibitors, in the volume and quality of the gifts and produce donated to the hampers, as well as the Festival visitors who continued buying raffle tickets right up until the last moments before the big draw.
"It was an amazing all-round effort," said Huw. "We are so immensely grateful to all of them, and I’d like to thank, too, our Rotary Club members who all made such a tremendous effort into encouraging ticket sales.
