And when you get to the new page scroll up and click on the happy faces.
I am very pleased to report that due to the generosity of Rotary clubs, societies, businesses and a few matching grants from District, we were able to send out 1089 Vouchers.
The vouchers were distributed to 129 primary schools across the entire District 1070, but this is only the beginning! Because of the amazing success of this first season, the 2023/24 season will see the project rolled out across the entire country.
There were a few unredeemed voucher codes ( for several different reasons) these have been put back into the pot for next year and if they were from a Rotary club those clubs will be contacted to see if they want them kept for next season in their name for local schools or put into the UK wide pot. We are already receiving requests for coats from schools outside our own district, and wherever possible, we are meeting these requests.
Our own fundraising will continue throughout Spring and Summer, we encourage you to start planning your fundraising early too should you wish to continue to support this project.
We will restart voucher distribution to schools at the beginning of September 2023 across the UK, we will start contacting schools at the end of the 2023 Summer Term.
