Community & Vocational Services
One of the commitments of this committee is to attend the various needs of people less fortunate, who by circumstance beyond their control, are unable to enjoy the social benefits of normal life. We are particularly keen to provide facilities that enable the elderly to enjoy entertainment otherwise not available. (The picture above shows one of our Senior Guests’ Parties.) The club support Chelmsford Community Transport, which provides transport services for those who cannot access public transport because of physical or mental limitations or rural exclusion. The younger generation are equally supported; where their engagement in Challenges or Expeditions which are socially or community orientated to develop their life skills, the committee will consider support to enable the applicant to complete their task successful & to the benefit of the community.
Rotarian Philip Goodman is Chair of our Community & Vocational Committee.
Senior guests’ trip to the panto
The annual trip to the Civic Theatre pantomime took place on 3 January 2020 and was, as usual, a great success. This year thirty senior guests thoroughly enjoyed watching Peter Pan. The panto is always of a very high standard and this year was no exception.
Our guests really appreciate the afternoon’s entertainment, complete with ice cream in the interval. Thanks go to all those Club members who helped with transport or assisted at the theatre. A number of phone calls have been received from guests asking that their thanks are passed on to the Club.
