Club helps local group

The club was delighted to assist a local group who help people in need in Barrow.

The club heard a presentation by the Islanders Dance Troupe, and were astonished by the work they do in the community.

The troupe helps local people in need with a host of ventures. The Rotary Club of Furness was so impressed that they donated £1000 to further their work in the community.

Islanders Dance Troupe support young people living within areas of deprivation in Barrow district including Walney and Barrow Island offering subsidised dance lessons for low-income families. 

During the pandemic, the troupe continued to support those in need by offering food parcels to families, and continuing delivery of dance lessons across three venues in a Covid secure manner, supporting 72 young people to remain physical active. 

Now due to the funding received, the Islanders can continue to operate and work in local communities ensuring young people stay active.
