A truly "inspirational alliance"

There has been a long and close
association between The Rotary Club of King's Lynn and The Purfleet Trust, with
Rotarian, Dr. Paul Richards acting a liasion between the two organisations.
A short time ago, the Club was advised of a planned collaboration between The
Purfleet Trust and The One to One Project, which was explained by the
principals of those organisations at a regular meeting of the Rotary
Club. To the Rotary members, this seemed to be a brilliant opportunity to
bring together the attributes of both parties, for the benefit of individuals
needing the proven skills of the other.
It was clear that the plan was well advanced and that to put it into operation would take a considerable amount of funding - details of which had been thoroughly researched and appeals were made for support.
The Rotary Club of King's Lynn, in conjunction with other local Rotary Clubs, made a committment to back the plan, and as a result President of The Rotary Club of King's Lynn Pip Rippengill presented a cheque for £1000 to ensure the plan could be put into operation.
Hannah Cooper from the One to One Project said that donations are very important, as despite the fact that the group was grant funded, there was a shortfall each year; whilst Paula Hall from the Purfleet Trust said that the donation was really going to help the homeless of West Norfolk.
