Caring at Christmas
We are delighted to announce that the funds raised from our various Christmas activities and
online Carol Concert have now been distributed to Elgin Youth Café, The Samaritans and Avenue.
Each Charity has received £1000 which will be used locally. These charities were suggested by members of Rotary Elgin who were keen to support young people and in particular their mental health following the tragic news of a local teenager taking his own life.
Elgin Youth Café have started a boys support group in response to this as the young person was a regular visitor to the café and all their activities.
Avenue is a local counselling organisation and we have requested that the money donated is used to provide support to local young people and we all know of the vital work that the Samaritans do in supporting all ages through difficult times.
All were delighted to receive the funds and if we can make a difference to even a small number of young people or save one life it will be funds well spent.
