Rotary charitable work goes on...
We've sent a cheque for £550 today to Childrens Hospice South West at Wraxhall which was raised following the Bristol City v Derby match earlier in the season.
There would normally be a nice photo of the presentation below but we don't want to compromise anyone's health by doing that
So...stay safe, support others and remain upbeat and positive.
Now...go and wash your hands, pick up the phone and call family or friends to let them hear a friendly voice and to show you care.

You knew this was coming didn't you...
The Clevedon Yeo Rotary quiz in aid of the local Foodbank on Friday 3rd April is cancelled.
We cannot take a risk, however small, with peoples health in a packed hall.
I am sure it will be rescheduled when appropriate.
Thank you Clevedon for your understanding and, if you are a Facebook reader, please be aware of the appeal from the Foodbank today concerning the items that they are short of.
Every little bit helps when you are shopping so don't forget the Foodbank donation point at Tesco in Clevedon
Stay safe and please, after reading this, wash your hands and then phone a friend just to ask
'And how are you today?'

16 March 2020

Thanks for your understanding

Busy day yesterday! Firstly, club members and partners visited the Helicopter museum in Weston Super Mare. Great attraction, very interesting, good guide and reasonably priced.
Then, later in the day, supported by a few great friends, club members held a bucket collection before the Bristol City v Derby game. Collections like this do suffer from the stadium and its surroundings being predominantly cashless but generosity still prevails amongst the fans. Hopefully we've raise a few bob for the Childrens Hospice South West at Wraxhall.
Those collectors that wanted to then enjoyed the game as guests of the club with a complimentary ticket.
Thanks BCFC and everyone that donated.
I'll post the exact amount when it has been counted.
Also watch out on our social media platforms for news of our forthcoming public speaking competition and another of our fantastic quizzes in early April.

Thank you in anticipation

Below is the letter our club received from Clevedon and District Foodbank proving that our recent donation is put to good use

Dear Rob and all those concerned,

 Please accept our most grateful thanks for your lovely donation of £650.00 to our Clevedon Foodbank from The Rotary Club of Clevedon. We hope you enjoyed the Quiz night even though It is quite an effort!
Our Foodbank has been as busier than ever over Christmas and New Year. 200/300 Hampers and Lunch bags went out as usual over the holiday period and still there seems a steady demand for needy vulnerable people each week.

We still have plenty of expenses and special projects going on eg the Eat Well Spend Less courses for different groups of people. At present we are spending over £800 on rent for the warehouse and container storage for food which lasts most of the year! Thank you also for your help in other ways too.
We wish you a healthy and Happy 2020.
We really do appreciate you thinking of us and be assured the money is well used!
Yours sincerely,
Gil Mears (Treasurer)

21 January 2020

Clevedon Yeo Rotary are pleased to support their local branch of Re-engage (Formerly Contact the Elderly) with a donation of £100– The club also provide practical help with two of its members volunteering to hold events locally.
The organisation arranges a tea party every month for older persons who are isolated from family and friends. This gives them at least one opportunity during the month to meet similar people and provides something to look forward to.

Volunteer hosts provide the teas and volunteer drivers collect the ladies or gentlemen and bring them to the host’s home. The normal number is between 6 and 10 at any tea party.

Monies received by Re Engage are used to provide entertainment at some tea parties, birthday cards and small presents on relevant occasions.
If you could help as a host or driver, or know of any older person who may benefit from a monthly social gathering please contact Alison on aea123@btinternet.com.
Below is a photograph of the presentation at one of the local events in Clevedon

10 January 2020

Hello Clevedon! We hope you've all recovered from the festivities and I know most of you are back to work.
Well, here is an update from the club.
Firstly we're starting to distribute some of the money we've raised and within the next few days a cheque will be presented to Clevedon and District Foodbank for £650 as a result of our quiz last autumn. A well respected and essential local facility that needs the money to support it's activities and to cover the cost of their premises, utility bills etc.
I'll post a picture of the presentation when it takes place.
Secondly, we're allocating £100 to the local 'Contact the Elderly' group. They provide friendship and support for older people who have limited social interaction.
Next......we've also got a bit more money to allocate and we'd like to hear from any local groups or organisations that need a financial boost to support a project that they are undertaking.
It may not be a large cheque by return but if we know who needs our help we can target our fundraising and our monies towards them. Email the club secretary (details below) if we can assist.
Please also keep an eye out for the 20,000 crocus bulbs planted around the town as a reminder of the Rotary initiative to support polio eradication.
New sites for the planting in the autumn included on the seafront between the bandstand and the sailing club and along Northern way in the verge.
The fairly mild weather we've had recently may encourage them to show before long.
Please be aware that the number quoted is a guesstimate as we didn't count them as we put them in!!!
We remain extremely grateful for the support of the local community for our efforts and would encourage all Clevedonians to keep abreast of what we're doing by following our Facebook page.
As they say in these parts 'Cheers me dears'

Quick update on our quiz last night. Early indications are that we've raised a figure in excess of £600 for Clevedon and District foodbank. A packed hall enjoyed a great quiz and a lovely supper. The money will be put to good use to help with the foodbanks bills.
We, as a club, will also be continuing our practical assistance to the Foodbank by helping them with the pre Christmas food collection at Tesco and continuing our weekly food collection from Tesco every Friday.
We have also supported Clevedon Community resilience with a recent donation of £50 to help with the purchase of equipment and finally watch out for our Brilliant Christmas hamper raffle. We'll be at the Christmas lights switch on, The St Nicholas Fayre on Hill road and Tesco in late November/early December.
A ticket purchased will help to support our local work in the community and get you the chance to win a hamper with £100's worth of festive fayre inside. This year the hamper is included. A great prize.
Finally, thank you Clevedon for your support and below are two photos. One of the winning team and another of one of our members working hard afterwards. It takes a lot of effort to put on events such as these!

Today, 24th October is World polio day. Who knew that?
Rotary, around the world, has worked tirelessly with other partners for years to try and combat the effects of this terrible disease through financial help, volunteering and through raising the profile of the campaign.
Our club in Clevedon have supported the effort financially but we are also keen that those less fortunate than ourselves, around the world, are remembered and that the Rotary effort is not forgotten. To highlight this we have planted in total around 20,000 purple crocuses around the town, over the past few years, to provide a vivid reminder every spring of this disease and the battle to overcome it.
This includes another 4,000 planted this autumn.
Purple is a significant colour in this campaign as a mark is placed, in purple dye, on the finger of those children who are vaccinated.
We hope to see a brilliant display next spring to ensure that those battling this disease and the efforts globally to eradicate it are not forgotten

The following is a quote from a recently commissioned survey by the Trussell trust into Foodbanks

.........The survey also revealed how deeply the UK public holds the values of compassion and justice, and the extent to which they act on them. Half of the public has taken action to address hunger and its causes in the last 12 months, with more than a third donating food to a food bank.......

We, in Clevedon, give tremendous support to the Foodbank and they will again be holding their pre-Christmas collection of donations at Tesco in November and December.
And our club members from Clevedon Yeo Rotary will be there to help.
The Foodbank also needs money to pay it's bills and cover other costs so we, as a Rotary club, as well as the aforementioned practical help, hold regular fundraising quizzes to raise funds for them.
Our next is on Friday 8th November at the Friary Hall, Marine Hill , Clevedon.
The cost is £7.50 p per person (teams of 4 ideally) to include supper and every single penny raised goes to offset the Foodbanks' bills. Please support our efforts to help others by coming along and having some fun.
There will be a licensed bar and raffle on the night

Great visit to the Glede brewery in Clevedon tonight. Nice food, good company and a great tour. The only micro brewery Clevedon did us proud.
They are based in Tweed road and their bar is open Thursday to Sunday 1-6 PM.
We learnt some great facts about brewing during the tour from the lads who were very friendly and informative.
Glede is apparently the old English name for the red kite.

It started as a sad day on Tuesday when a fantastic number of club members past and present said goodbye to Angela Hughes, wife of ex member Neville Hughes, who passed away on the 10th August. The crematorium near Bridgwater was packed to remember a warm, funny, larger than life character. Angela was fondly remembered by all those present and the eulogies given were a fantastic tribute to her memory. RIP Angela
Later, in a mixed day of emotions the club played its latest boules match at the Bird in Hand at Salford against Keynsham. It finished 3-3 but we triumphed on points. A good end to the day.

So, here's a story. Clevedon town council gets a call from a resident in Jesmond road. She states the area in the corner of the park opposite her house is like a jungle.
She would be willing to plant some plants to brighten up the area but cannot do the hard graft (getting rid of the weeds etc)
So, Clevedon Yeo Rotary fires into action and we spent last night clearing most of the jungle. More work to do but a good start.

At our meeting last night we recognised the fantastic contribution by our President Tony (on the right in the picture below) during the last year with the presentation of six Crystal glasses. It's also a bribe as he's continuing in the role next year!
We are also looking forward to completing some more gardening work in Clevedon in the next couple of weeks and our annual car treasure hunt in August. In the autumn we'll be upping our game by engaging in a few interesting visits and continuing our charitable fundraising work.
Also, Just a few words for the premises that have supported our Rotary collecting tins. In the last year they've realised a sum of £228.73p. Brilliant!!!
So to all you Clevedon residents. We are going to shuffle a few of them around. If you're a premises who'd like to have one email our secretary at steviemolloy@aol.com
The tins don't eat anything, are easy to keep and every single penny donated into them goes towards our work in the town.
Thanks Clevedon

Great night last night listening to two inspirational lads from Clevedon school, Rory and Jack. They helped us host our public speaking competition last year and, as a result of that we helped to sponsor them for the European youth parliament debating event in Liverpool, where they went after Clevedon school won the regional heat.
At Liverpool one of the lads Rory was selected to debate in Europe and went to Mechellen in Belgium. A credit to the school and the teacher involved Mark Cullen. All supported by a financial boost from our club
Great work everyone

So...Where does all that money you generous Clevedonians give us get spent? Well it's end of year for us so here's an update
We raised in the year £8114!!! A FANTASTIC sum from a group currently, because of health issues numbering 8 active members. BUT what a fantastic effort from them.
Money isn't everything as we've also planted thousands of 'Purple for Polio' Crocuses around the town to remind everyone of the Rotary efforts in polio eradication. We've also cleared up various areas around the town, stewarded events and ran a public speaking competition for Clevedon school. Phew!
Below is the list of organisations who have benefited from our efforts
£1600 to Clevedon and District Foodbank
£1000 to Childrens Hospice South West at Wraxhall,
£500 to Clevedon First Responders towards their car insurance,
£1450 to Southmead Hospital Prostate appeal
£280 to Bristol MS society
£250 to the Samaritans,
£150 each to Clevedon Guides (towards a tent) and 2nd Clevedon Scouts towards a Canoe shelter,
£100 each to Clevedon Ladies rugby, Youth Mentoring, Greyfriars Friendship club, Contact the Elderly, Za Foundation (a touring group visiting schools. They're from South Africa)
£50 each to Clevedon Gardeners (the red shirts who brighten our town up) and £50 to Keighley Rotary club as one of their members was riding through our area for charity
This leaves a donation of between £3-4000 to go to Cancer Research UK from our recent concert.
This has been raised through Quizzes, Christmas Hamper raffle, Bucket Shake at Ashton Gate and many other activities including members own initiatives such as sponsored walks and talks to local groups. We also secured a matching grant from Rotary HQ for one of our initiatives
Our collecting tins are also still strategically placed around the town.
So...THANKS CLEVEDON...you have a small but dedicated group out there working to improve our community. Thanks for your support
And a PS we also collect the Foodbank donations from Tesco every week and deliver them to the Foodbank!

Great visit to the Childrens' Hospice South West at Wraxhall (where they undertake fabulous work) where club members Helen and Treasurer Rob presented a cheque for £1000 to the Hospice.
This was predominantly raised through a bucket collection at Bristol Bears v Worcester Rugby and topped up by club funds. Two lots of thanks
To all the rugby fans that contributed and to the work of the small, dedicated team that is Clevedon Yeo Rotary.
We also were very grateful for the assistance of a few 'Friends of Rotary' on the collection

Music to stir the soul and voices to touch your heart strings were in evidence at the Clevedon Yeo Rotary concert held at Christchurch, Clevedon on Saturday 11th May.
A packed hall enjoyed a fabulous nights entertainment from the Caerphilly Male Voice choir and guest soloists.
The concert was originally the brainchild of Chris and Maggie Morris. Chris, however, passed away very shortly before the event from Cancer.
The event was successful in raising a fantastic amount of money for Cancer Research UK and early indications are that a sum approaching £4000 will be the final donation.
Club President Tony Carrington said "I am proud of the hard work of all of our members to stage this event.
With some health issues within the club this has been achieved with a membership of eight active members.
We thank everyone for their support. I am also proud of our efforts in other fields namely a recent donation of £1000 to the Childrens' Hospice South West at Wraxhall and £900 to our local foodbank. Both of these were possible following our regular quiz and a collection at Ashton gate by these dedicated and hardworking members We also are grateful for the support of their family and friends"

We are happy to post a link for a family from Clevedon with a seriously ill boy that needs a little help. Here is the story.

Hello there.

I wanted to introduce you to Noah. A little boy from Clevedon who lives with a condition so rare it affects less than 100 people worldwide. Noah has learning disabilities and has congenital heart defects as a result of a microdeletion on his 8th chromosome.
I'm his mum and to say I am so proud of him is an understatement. We are fundraising to attend a pivotal conference in New York June 27th to 29th, with researchers who want to study Noah's condition and see if they can find the genes responsible for certain intellectual defects and health complications associated with such a rare genetic condition.
I would be most appreciative if you could help us raise awareness of our go fund me.
I can send the link on if it's something you would be willing to feature.
This trip means not only will we meet the researchers, scientists and geneticists researching Noah's condition BUT also a lot of the other families will be in attendance. Noah was diagnosed about a year ago and we've yet to meet another family with the same diagnosis as him because it's so rare

The link is too long to go on here so...go to Go fund me and search the site using 'Aimee Clevedon' and you'll get to his page.They have currently raised £1230 of a £3000 target
Help if you can.

Quick update-We had a conversation with the Community centre which indicated they had a wedding at the venue today (30/6) and we had only half finished our clearing of the Patio. So...4 members gave up their Friday evening to finish the job and make sure their day went well today. We did reward ourselves with a pint after
Well done lads!

It is with sadness that I advise of the passing of Martyn Mills. I knew Martyn for a number of years in the guise of landlord of the Pier, The Beachcomber (now the Moon and Sixpence) and a member of the Beachcombers Jazz band. He was also an avid Rotarian for many years
I will circulate details of his funeral when known
RIP Martyn

We held our club assembly last night. It is held every year and is where the incoming President outlines his plans in front of someone from head office (only kidding Judy)
Well, we are lucky enough to have the very energetic and enthusiastic Tony Carrington carrying on in that role for another year.
What are his plans-Well really it's summed up in a this quick overview
"We want to continue making ourselves seen in our community, raising funds for worthwhile projects and organisations and helping, wherever possible, to improve Clevedon as a place to live, work and play"
(I think he borrowed Live, Work and Play from the Mars bar advert!!!)
We also gained a new member to the club-Welcome John
Thanks again to the support of all Clevedonians and we will continue to try and be a positive influence in the town.

Just a quick update from our club.
Here are a few recent examples of the use of our funds.
We have again covered the cost of the insurance for the Clevedon First Responders vehicles for another year. This is a fabulous local resource run by a great team that can help to save lives in the town.
We have also provided a cheque for £250 for a local lad to attend the USA in 2019 for a world scouting jamboree and supported two Clevedon School pupils, to the tune of £280, to attend a national debating event in Liverpool in June.
It is only fair that we let Clevedonians who kindly support our activities know where we use the money

The 'silver screen' is alive and well in Clevedon bringing joy to residents of local nursing and residential homes. Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club has supported the initiative with a sizeable financial donation.

Sam Jays from the Curzon explains
"Front Room Cinema benefits the local community in a unique way. People who may not have been to a cinema in years are given the chance to experience the big screen once again, in a safe and comfortable environment. The films give residents something new to talk about and we love discussing the experience with them afterwards. Residents comment that it is enjoyable and that they appreciate “the convenience” and “pleasant company”. We often have requests for a second visit before we’ve packed up the equipment!
We are extremely grateful to have received this donation from the Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club. Donations are absolutely vital to the project, not only do they allow us to purchase professional equipment to enhance the cinema experience but they also allow us to decrease the cost to care homes, allowing us to visit a wider range of locations.
I would like to extend a personal thank you, as the donation allows this project to continue to make people happy, and it’s a project that myself and my colleagues find extremely rewarding to be a part of."

Latest Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club news!
As a result of our fabulous quiz night we were able (today) to give another cheque for £750 to Clevedon and District Foodbank. A fabulous local cause. That means we, as a club, have donated £2000 to the Foodbank over the last 6 months!
One of our members (Rob) also picks up the donations from Tesco every Friday and delivers it to the foodbank
We have also given a donation of £50 to Linda Knotts' team of Gardeners who spruce up the town and reach the areas of town that Clevedon Pride don't reach. They will be spending it on plants and shrubs to brighten the town up!
We will also be covering again this year the insurance for the Clevedon First Responders vehicle and, in the next couple of weeks painting some walls on the outside of the community centre.

Great evening at the Walton Park hotel last night!
14 students from Clevedon school entertained a packed room with their public speaking skills on subjects as diverse as Doping in Sport, Safety whilst on line and Global warming.
All participants performed fantastically well and are a credit to themselves and the work being undertaken at Clevedon school to produce our citizens of the future. The three top performers on the night received Amazon vouchers and all participants received a certificate to recognise their involvement.
We should be proud of our young people and if this is a testament to our local schools' standards and values we should all be positive for the future.
Thanks go to the Walton Park Hotel for hosting the event, the Rotary Club of Clevedon Yeo for their work and to all of the participants for their tremendous efforts both in preparation and on the night.
A few photographs of the evening are attached including the judging panel, one of the speakers in full flight and all of the participants with their certificates

Last Friday's quiz held in a packed Friary Hall in Clevedon raised another fantastic sum of well over £500 which together with the residue of a Rotary district grant will ensure a cheque for £750 is given to the Clevedon and District Foodbank thereby making over £2000 (yes two thousand pounds!) donated to this tremendous local worthwhile cause over the last six months.
A BIG thank you to the Quiz master Rob and chef Yvonne who together with their other club helpers do such a great job putting the quiz nights together.

Secondly, on Tuesday 17th April at the Walton Park Hotel, Wellington Terrace, at 7-30 pm, we are again running our public speaking competition for pupils from Clevedon School. A great evening. All are welcome so...come along and see these kids in action

A friend of Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club has a disabled son who engages in motorsport with various other drivers suffering from both physical disabilities and PTSD.
They are trying to secure sponsors so please, if you are interested have a look at their website and/or contact the numbers below. It would be a tremendous boost for the team and great PR for Rotary or any other business locally to get involved.

Herewith is the latest update for Team Brit and their journey to Le Mans.

Message from the drivers dad-Dave Russell...

Please have a look at their website www.teamBRIT.co.uk and James’ facebook page – James Russell Racing.

There are a couple of options for sponsorship – Sponsor the Team (see their requirements below) – Sponsor James the Driver ( the cheaper option with attendance to a race meeting, brand advertising on personal race ware etc.).

As you will see this is a professional racing team looking to compete with able bodied teams on a level playing field. The drivers are all disabled to varying degrees with some coming from the armed forces and some from civvie life like James. The steering wheel technology they have developed allows disabled drivers to compete and their launch this year into GT4 shows just how competitive these guys are!!

Team Brit also have a facebook page.

I appreciate that Rotary may not be able to sponsor a Race Team but some Rotarians or other local companies may have an interest in promoting their business through a medium that upholds the philosophy of diversity, is committed to removing the barriers of disability, and can provide national and international exposure with a media reach of over 200 million annually.

Please give me a ring if you need any additional info.

Kind Regards

A little story. When we started selling the tickets for our Christmas hamper raffle to raise money for local good causes the very first ticket was brought by a lad who stated
"I'm living in the woods in Clevedon-This would be good for me to win" He handed over his £1 and was given ticket number 1!
Unfortunately he didn't win but his gesture to support local charities was appreciated.
It wan't until I saw the North Somerset Times this week that I recognised him again as Paul Spencer (see page 5) living in the woods.
We couldn't hesitate in supporting him and will be giving £50 to his Go Fund me appeal. We'd love to give more but we like to spread our donations far and wide and have recently given £1300 to the Clevedon and District foodbank.
Good luck Paul-Your generosity of spirit deserves it's rewards
Best wishes-All at Clevedon Yeo Rotary club
PS Come on Clevedon-It's nice to see you giving Paul your support
