The Club has supported a wide variety of good causes over its 35 year history, including Rotary's own charity, the Rotary Foundation, which distributes funds to projects in many countries including here in Ireland. Its biggest endeavour has been to initiate the project to eliminate polio and then partner the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in working to achieve that objective which is now within a hairsbreadth of success.
The attached pages illustrate some of the charities which the Club has supported in recent times.
more The Club has now been working with the charity Lend With Care to provide small loans for businesses in developing countries for over a year. As the loans are repaid the money is "recycled" out to other small businesses to provide some further capital.
more The COVID pandemic has disrupted the life of the club, particularly regarding fundraising. As far as possible we have tried to continue our support for charities, with a particular focus on those helping local people affected by the pandemic.
