Rotary and Covid19
The response of Malton and Norton Rotary Club to Covid19
Malton and Norton Rotary and Covid 19
With the onslaught of Covid 19, one thing has been apparent throughout the U.K. An estimated 750,00 people have come forward either as individuals or as part of community organisations to help and support front line workers, their local communities and individuals in need.
In the last two months, Malton and Norton Rotary, has donated £2,000.00 to the ‘Ryedale Scrubs’ (a group of local volunteers manufacturing PPE for Care Homes and NHS workers.) Easter Eggs to pre-school children and support for the local Free Fridge, food banks and Ryedale Carers. We have also provided support to some members of the community in financial need.
Malton and Norton Rotary club is part of a worldwide organisation of volunteers, dedicated to supporting individuals and projects in their area and we raise funds through our ‘pop-up’ Charity Shop and other local events. We also meet socially on a regular basis.
If you are a volunteer in these difficult times, why don’t you consider joining us when things become the ‘new normal’ either as a Rotarian or on a more casual basis, as a Friend of Rotary?
Whatever happens in the future, there will be many still in need of help, advice and support.
