Home and Away Team

Home and Away Team


After a year as the new Home & Away Team I am pleased to report that after a difficult start we have managed to find our feet again and are engaging in many of the projects and tasks that we set out to do 12 months ago. A key example of this were the efforts of Steve Best, Mary Davies, Richard Cunningham and Pont to fund a solar power lighting scheme in Bumatofu Primary School Mbale. Unfortunately they were unable to secure a Welsh in Africa Government Grant to support this but Steve is determined that this year things will be different.

The team will continue to look at ways to benefit the wider community, both at home and abroad, and raise funds to do this. Our focus has previously been on supporting local projects and charities but with our wider brief we will continue to look at funding projects further from home.

For 2022-23 our Team will :-

Continue to maintain the Rotary Garden at the Whitchurch Hub

Maintain the three planters in Whitchurch and Tongwynlais Villages

Continue to support Bryn Celyn and Peter Lea Primary schools, in consultation with the teaching staff

Present suitable learning materials to children in Bryn Celyn, Tongwynlais and Peter Lea Primary schools, partly funded by a District Grant.

Undertake assisted reading at Grangetown, Bryn Celyn and Peter Lea Primary schools once it is safe to do so.

Review our current support of the Paradise Run, the Huggard Centre and the Northlands Life House (Salvation Army) in the light of changing local needs.

Continue to support and distribute Message in a Bottle (MIAB) via local pharmacies and stores.

Continue to support and contribute to the Whitchurch & Tongwynlais annual Festival by organising the Duck Race and running a tombola stall at the Festival Fete.

Continue to support the Kiva Microfinance and Lend with Care Initiatives

Prepare a District Grant application for a Solar Power installation at Bumatofy Primary School (Mbale)

Respond to disasters and crises, both at Home and Away, with either financial assistance or voluntary action.

Organise the annual fund raising International Quiz in February 2023

Organise an additional fund raising project for later this year

Support future joint initiatives proposed by the other Cardiff Clubs
