Community Chest Awards 2019
Wed 18th September 2019 at 19.00 - 21.00
A chance for the groups who have had awards to tell us about their projects and learn a little about Rotary
Fourteen groups were awarded grants from this year's Community Chest and 13 of them came to the evening meeting to answer questions about their projects. David Houghton was the compere for this part of the evening; he explained that since 2016 we had given over £21,000 to over 30 community groups.
Each representative told us about their use of the Community Chest grant and it was a delight to see how much help our grants are. It was helpful to Rotarians to learn about this , but equally rewarding was seeing how much "community networking" went on between the groups and Rotarians. As we were making arrangements for Madresfield catering and the RFOD half marathon marshalling, the groups got a flavour of how we earn the money for the Community Chest.
We welcomed District Governor Judy Powell and her husband to the meeting and put her to work inducting our newest member Eamonn Mullally.
A really enjoyable evening.
