Preston Rotary Club makes second donation from their Appeal Fund

The second donation from Preston Rotary Club’s Appeal Fund has just been made – £600 to The Thrive Project based in Totnes Road Paignton.

 The Thrive Project is a Community Hub founded in February 2019 offering support, signposting, referrals and companionship to the vulnerable and the homeless. 
There is always a warm drink, snack and welcome at their premises in Totnes Road. They work closely with all professional agencies and can offer SMART recovery, access to a Youth Outreach worker, Adult Social Care and a Benefits Specialist. They rely solely on donations and unpaid volunteers.

 Rachel, who is the driving force behind Thrive said “Since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic we have seen the need for our help grow substantially. This is both from existing relationships and from new ones as people find themselves with nowhere to turn for help. We are just so grateful to a number of individuals and local groups like Preston Rotary Club who recognise the work we do and just want to help”  Thrive can offer help with food and key essentials through their link with Paignton Community Larder and the recently formed Torbay Food Alliance.   For further information and to find out how you can help go to their Facebook page: The Thrive Project.

Peter Burcher, President of Preston Rotary Club, thanked members of the general public who had responded to the Club’s Appeal for donations and added “We are very pleased to say that these funds will not stay in our bank account for long- we want to mobilise them, putting them to good use, where they are needed- the small local charities that tirelessly work to support the increased demand from local people for their help.

Whilst we have had a fantastic initial response to the Appeal from our members and people in our local community we know from the requests for help we are receiving that there is a huge need for our help. We can’t even begin to scratch the surface of the problem without asking the hugely supportive local community to help us. If they can supply the funds we will make sure it is put to excellent use”.

To help with the Appeal and their work– please go to www.preston.rotary1175.org where you can make a secure and instant donation to their Appeal Fund.
