Rotary Club activity during lockdown

Ten days after becoming President of Wells Rotary, Margaret Wright presented a £500 cheque to further the work of the Wells Vineyard Foodbank. During the coronavirus pandemic, demand for its services has doubled and they now need more storage space.

The Foodbank has seen a 100 per cent increase in requests for help and every donation is gladly received," said Margaret.


“Wells Rotary Club has also donated £500 to both the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Rubicon organisation who do such valuable work in our community using their four-wheel vehicles to support front-line services."


The Foodbank is based in a unit at the Keward Mill Trading Estate off Jocelyn Drive in Wells. But, as the photo suggests, the unit is bursting at the seams because of the increase in demand.


They are looking for new ground premises in Wells with electricity which would be accessible for people without their own transport. The Foodbank’s phone number is 01749 679670.
