CHARITY NEWS THE LATEST FROM THE WHEELCHAIR FOUNDATION
THANKS FROM THE WHEELCHAIR FOUNDATION
HELPING "BUTTERFLIES" FLY 28th.March 2018
The members were delighted to receive a card from the Wheelchair Foundation UK thanking them for their donation of two wheelchairs for Botswana. Our interest in this deserving cause was raised a few years ago by a District Conference talk on the subject. It ended with a poignant quote from a young recipient who expressed his delight with his newfound mobility in the wonderful phrase “Yesterday I was a maggot crawling on the ground. Today I am a butterfly”. No one in that Rotary District audience could forget the chance appearance of a butterfly flying across the room. Since then our Club have regular donated at least two chairs per year based on our Christmas Card donations.
