A cheque for £3,000 was recently presented, by President Anne Bartholomew and Senior Vice President Ron Hesketh, to Alysia Cameron-Price to help provide funds for the palliative care in-patient unit to support people who are living with a life-limiting conditions as well as supporting their families.
Members of Tewkesbury Rotary Club also supported the recent Starlight Hike on Saturday 20th October, either by acting as Marshalls or more importantly actually completing the 10k hike. The Club has agreed to match fund the amount raised by the Club members.
Throughout the year Tewkesbury Rotary Club will continue to support the Sue Ryder Hospice, by volunteering for the Ride for Ryder on Sunday 23rd June 2019 and for the Starlight Hike on Saturday 19th October 2019.
