Our Rotary year runs from July to June and here is how we spent our money in the last financial year July 19 - June 20

The Rotary year July 19 - June 20, despite the latter quarter being affected by COVID lockdown and restrictions, has been another busy year for the club. The cancellation of our annual Beer Festival has seriously affected our income and we have had to dig into our reserves. When we resumed our activities we focused our attention on food poverty, supporting the local foodbanks. Some our members are donating their lunch money and we are using this specifically for food banks. 

Prior to lockdown we had been active in supporting a number of organisations and these are listed below:
