A message from our president, Chris Kitson
It hasn't been easy for the Rotary Club of Market Bosworth to do its bit for the community amid all the disruption of Corona virus lockdowns. Our fund raising events are on hold and even our services to the community have been much curtailed.
What better way to put smiles back on everyone's face than our cheery house Window initiative and two new springtime competitions!
Join-in everyone and let's have some Easter fun, its free! - But we would really, really like to invite voluntary donations to assist our fundraising activities. Please click/tap Here so that we can continue to support those in greatest need.
We are always extremely grateful for the generosity and support provided by our community.
Easter Windows Springtime Celebration
Let's give everyone a sign of hope!
Celebrate springtime! Printemps, Primavera, Frühling, Wiosna, Bahaar - it doesn't matter what we call it, its still that wonderful time of year when spring is in the air, the weather is improving and the pandemic is at long last, we hope, in full retreat!
Join in Rotary's campaign to brighten up
Bosworth and surrounding villages with a positive sign in your front window.
What will it be? An Easter egg? A bunny? A cross? A butterfly? A chick?
You choose - the more colourful the better!
It isnt a competition; there is no charge to take
part but if you would like to make a donation to Rotary Charities then please
visit Market Bosworth Rotary GoFundMe Account.
Show us a sign of hope and encouragement as we wander around our villages!
