Bromley Rotary Club supports The Michael Project

Bromley Rotary Club supports The Michael Project

Last Tuesday Bromley Rotary Club who have been long term supporters of the Michael Project enjoyed an update from David and Helen Hobbs, and made a further donation of £500 to help fund their work.

The Project, based in Zimbabwe, is run by Helen Hobbs, the niece of Richard Ayling a Past President of the Bromley Rotary, and her husband David. Their objective is to support orphans, of which there are some 1.8 million in the country, and the children of women in prison. They run a number of pre-schools including the Wingate Centre which was the subject of the club’s recent project with them.

Recently they built a new classroom at the centre and with the aid of Rotary District and Club funds they furnished and fitted out the new building.

The Bromley Rotary Club likes to support projects of this type as it has direct contact with those in charge and knows that the funds are used only for the agreed project and are not wasted on overheads.
