ROCHFORD ROTARY CLUB STARTS THE NEW YEAR WITH COMMUNITY DONATIONS

The Rotary Club of Rochford has been using some of the funds it raised from its record Christmas collections to help a number of local community groups.  A total of nearly 7,000 was raised from street collections and retail outlets during November and December last year and the Club has moved quickly to support several worthwhile local causes.

500 was given to each of the following organisations:

Peaceful Place. A safe and friendly day centre in Rochford, which focuses on providing mentally, physically and socially stimulating activities to people aged under 65 living with young onset dementia, at the same time giving respite to carers;

Macmillan Cancer Support to help in our local area;

Rayleigh, Rochford and District Association for Voluntary Services. Supporting their Christmas Fund to assist the elderly and needy in Rochford; and

Bosom Pals. To assist in the purchase of a G.P.S navigator control unit, an instrument which pinpoints lymph nodes requiring testing for cancer, avoiding random selection.

In addition to these donations, towards the end of last year, three energetic Rochford Rotarians joined the music march from Benfleet to Leigh.  Club President Jeremy Davenport, David Reynolds and Tony Crockett raised 530 in sponsorship for MENCAP

 

Rotary President, Rotarian Jeremy Davenport said, It has been a busy, but extremely rewarding time for our Club. We are a service organisation, but we are also keen to raise funds for local good causes.  The recent donations we have been able to make demonstrates in a clear and meaningful way that the hard work we have put in has been very worthwhile.
