HELP FOR CHARITIES SINCE THE START OF THE PANDEMIC.

We are helping local charities through the present coronavirus situation. Due to the pandemic we are having difficulties in raising funds. See below to find how to help us.

Public donations will ensure that New Forest Rotary Club can continue to provide financial support not only for the crucially important food banks but also for many small charities doing valuable work in our community during this national crisis.  If you wish to donate please click on the donate button.
 
New Forest Rotary Club has responded to the challenge of Covid-19 by prioritising its financial support for food banks, following support already given to other essential charitable causes since the commencement of lockdown in March. Cash donations have been made to New Forest Basics Bank, covering an area as far north as Brockenhurst and Burley; to the Lyndhurst Welfare Charity food bank, covering the village and outlying communities; and to Youth & Families Matter, Totton food bank.

Although seemingly affluent areas, loss of income is causing immense hardship to many families, with pride often preventing deserving cases from seeking assistance. With Britain now struggling against a resurgence of the pandemic, further private sector job losses are anticipated in the coming months. The financial hardship caused to families is widely expected to increase the demand for food parcels within communities throughout the New Forest area. 

Public donations will ensure that New Forest Rotary Club can continue to provide financial support not only for the crucially important food banks but also for many small charities doing valuable work in our community during this national crisis. Click HERE on this link to find how to  help us.
