Stroud Rotary working in the local Community
2020 - Virtual Balloon Race
There was no Father Christmas at Tesco Stroud so instead we ran a Virtual Balloon Race with the proceeds going to Stroud Womens Refuge. We raised £1150. This bought £350 of childrens Christmas presents for the children that will be in the refuge over Christmas and £800 donation for The Refuge. This includes includes a donation from Stroud Valleys Family Practice of £300 from their secondhand book sales for the year and £200 from Barbara Ruthers from the proceeds from selling her homemade face masks.
Thanks to Tesco and Waitrose for sponsoring the second and third prize.
