Proceeds for the:-

ROTARY CLUB OF SUTTON IN ASHFIELD WELFARE FUND.

This was a fun event. Participants were able to decorate their own balloon; fill it with helium; and watch the progress of their balloon on the website – all for the cost of £3 per balloon.

We hope that you enjoyed it.

The Rotary Club of Sutton in Ashfield is a charitable organisation whose members work in and with the local community to raise funds for local charities providing assistance with international disaster relief and helping to eradicate disease worldwide.

In normal years our major source of Fundraising is the Christmas Sleigh which tours the streets of Sutton in Ashfield enabling us to collect monies on the way. Unfortunately, because of the Covid19 pandemic this had to be substantially altered this year, and whilst we were still able to tour the streets, we were not able to collect monies.

One of our projects this year is to support our local primary schools to obtain IT equipment for schools. We are able to assist in the purchase of IT equipment that can be distributed by schools to their pupils to assist with their pupils education.
