Our Coronarvirus Response
The impact of Coronavirus has adversely impacted on many organisations and people. The Rotary Club of Taunton is working to support those in need. Read more about the help available as we begin to 'showcase' speakers to our Club.
The Rotary Club of Taunton continues to meet weekly on-line. As our planned activites and fund raising events have been postponed or delayed we have given our attention to how we can support others in need, be these organisations or charities that are reaching out to those affected by the Lckdown, or individuals in need of our direct help and support.
Never in recent history has there been a better opportunity for us collectively to embrace our Rotary motto, which is 'Service above Self'. As part of our ongoing desire to support our community, our web site articles are, one by one, being dedicated to those organisations and charities who are seeking wider support in their endeavours to help out more vulnerable and isolated members of society.
In this way we can help others keep in touch and up-to-date and publicise those individuals and organisations with whom we are in contact. Many have given their time to speak to us as Rotarians and tell us about the things they are doing in the community and where they see the needs arising both in the short and longer term.
We are proud to publicise their activities on our site and would also like to take this opportunity to thank all NHS and key workers for their dedication and contribution at this time of need.
Projects we are current supported include:
The Coronavirus Community Help Taunton - An Emergency Fund for those in need.
Besom - Home starter packs and freash food for those in need.
Cullen's Catering - Ready to Go Sunday lunches for those trapped at home.
YMCA Dulverton - Art materials for the homeless.
Go-Create - 'In Isolation' project
