Thanks to the enormous generosity of a great many people in Farnborough and beyond, in January the Club was delighted to approve donations totalling £10,905 to seventeen different local, district and international beneficiaries.
Farnborough Rotary is proud to be a significant contributor to many charities, mostly local but some very worthy humanitarian organisations working on the international stage. Given the easing of Covid restrictions, we hope to be able to continue raising money during 2022 through the events w currently have scheduled.

Thank you for your continued support.
Hart & Rushmoor Young Carers - Thank you ever so much. This money will go towards taking a group of 30 young carers aged 12-15 years to the Young Carers Festival at YMCA Fairthorne Manor near Southampton over the weekend of 1st to 3rd July. The weekend provides opportunities for young carers aged 11-16 years from all around the country to enjoy a break from their responsibilities, have fun, relax, socialise and have their voices heard on issues that affect them and their families. Activities over the weekend will include opening and closing ceremonies, a firework display, live music, YCFM radio station, silent discos, fairground rides, an abseiling wall, rock climbing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, zip line, campfire, yoga, arts and crafts.
