WHERE DID OUR FUNDING GO IN 22/23
With the club back to normal following the pandemic years we have been able to support a number of organisations this year.
Two beer festivals and, despite the weather, a successful season of Christmas activities has replenished the coffers and meant that we have again been able to support our local community, our schools and the International charities that are an important aspect of Rotary. In total we distributed £22606 and without your generosity we would not have been able to support the organisations highlighted in the attached list.
