Rotary Foundation

This committee provides the link with Rotary Internationals main charitable trust which primarily deals with projects having a global nature.

Plans for the year:

Peace Studies
The Club will continue to support the University of Bradford Peace Studies department by attending their functions and providing what support we can.

Peace Scholars
We aim to arrange for a Peace Scholar to visit our Club and make a presentation on the work he/she is doing at the Peace department of the University of Bradford.

We have been successful in regularly applying and receiving District Grants. This year we intend as last year to apply for two District Grants
We will also make grant applications to the George Towler Trust and the Craig Charity for Children.

If we receive any grants they will be used to finance the provision of Dictionaries 4 Life to schools within the Bradford district.

Rotary Foundation Direct Giving
In this as in previous years we will encourage members to make a Gift Aid payment towards our Foundation Funds. This year a figure of £25 will be requested from each member.

Fundraising for Polio Plus

Here is the team in the completed shirts (other than Tim - who had to dash off).
