Raising funds for local initiatives
The Rotary Wells are situated in Ayr Hospital and the Burns Museaum Memorial Park in Alloway. Money collected from the wells goes towards local charities and local people.
For the period from July 2018 until the end of February 2019, the total collected in the spiral well at the hospital was £583.
Over the 6 weeks of the School Summer holidays, £58.43 was collected in the wishing well. This amount will go towards supporting local charities and local people, who benefit from our Community award.

Past President George Irvine reported at the 1st business meeting of the year, that the total collected in the Spiral Well had been £1155. Let's hope that we can raise enough by the end of 2018 to provide another pump for a child with diabetes
February saw a dip in takings in the spiral well only £72
Amount collected December 2017 £174In the main corridor of Ayr Hospital, directly opposite the cafe, you will find the Rotary Club of Alloway's Spiral Well. In the Rotary year July 2016/June 2017 the public donated over £800 into this well. A Rotarian from the club gave an anonymous donation to top this money up to allow us to purchase a paediatric insulin pump, at a cost of circa £2500.
If you see this well at the hospital, and have some loose change in your purse or pocket, please drop it in to the well, and help us provide another paediatric insulin pump.
This Rotary year July 2017/June 2018 we have raised the following amounts.July £45, August £51, September £85, October £64 November £137 December £174
The simple act of putting a sign up, on the pump, to say where the money is going, has made an incredible difference.
We are well on our way to purchasing pump number three. The Spiral Well has been a major success.
