£5,000 Donation to Sick Childrens Trust
Royston’s Rotarians have donated £5,000 to the Sick Children’s Trust – for the second year running.
Royston’s Rotarians have donated £5,000 to the Sick Children’s Trust – for the second year running. The donation comes from the proceeds of the club’s annual Kite Festival. President, Martin Berry, had been so impressed by the charity’s work that he took the unusual step of making the award to SCT again, after the club donated the same amount last year.
The Sick Children’s Trust is the charity that gives over 3,500 families with a seriously ill child in hospital a warm and comfortable place to stay when they need it most. Across England, the charity runs ten ‘Homes from Home’, two of which are located at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
“We think the Trust does a wonderful job, and after we learned more about their work in the past year, I thought they really merited a second award – and all the club’s members thought the same” said Martin Berry as he presented the cheque to the Trust’s vice- president Patsy Glazebrook at a ceremony in Cambridge, also attended by Dr Jane Hawking.
