Thursday 7 October 2021 we had a rerun of the highly successful "Giving Stall" that was first held in the midst of Covid restrictions. This year we joined up with The Friary who help the homeless and potentially homeless in RushclIffe; Tara's Angels who work with Women's refuges, and Rosie May Foundation who turned their attention from Sri Lanka and Nepal to help those who became more isolated during Covid restrictions.
We were struck with the amazing generosity of all those who donated items to The Friary and Tara's Angels. Rosie May we're delighted to have recruited volunteers to help with their local project and our Rotary Club took the opportunity to make a donation to them to help keep their two Pink Tuk-Tuks on the streets of Bingham and the surrounding area.
As a bonus we were approached by a couple of people who wanted to know more about our Club. We're hoping they'll come an see us and probably even join us as members
Thanks to the many local traders who displayed our poster in their windows to help advertise the event.
It is intended that any grant will help:
begin a new or develop an existing community organisation for the benefit of local people;
support the development of young people in local schools;
support the individual development of young people.
The group, school or individual must be resident in the local area (i.e the local parishes of Radcliffe, Cotgrave, Bingham, East Bridgford Car Colston, Kinoulton, Hickling or the groups of Wiverton and Cranmer.
It is expected average grants will be between £50 and £125 and it is anticipated that this funding will often compliment other support or act as start-up funding to enable other sources of funds to be accessed.
The fund’s managing group will make their decisions quarterly (December, March, June, September).
Since its inception the fund has been supplemented by a single donation to be used to help Disabled People. Both funds will continue to run and be "topped up" from funds that the Club raises locally.
