World’s Greatest Meal raises £1000

(November 2022) Croydon Rotary Club’s recent World’s Greatest Meal lunch, the first since 2019, far exceeded all expectations by raising £1000 for the End Polio Now Campaign (and each dollar raised is tripled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation).

Over the last 35 years, Rotary members, working with communities around the world, have contributed more than US$2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to the fight to end polio.  Inspired in part by Rotary’s volunteer commitment and fundraising success, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) was launched in 1988.

Foodbank Appeal

(March 2022)  Kew Gardens Rotary Club is working with the Richmond foodbank to support families in their community who are having to make the impossible decision to choose between staying warm or buying food.   Recently the Club has been included in the National Emergencies Trust Local Action Fund which means that donations of up to £250 will be matched by the Fund.
