Supporting our local community - Providing radios.
Lockdown certainly won't stop our club!
The last six months have been testing times for everyone. We have all had to make changes to our lives and for the Rotary Club of Erith that meant that we had to suspend our weekly meetings and like so many others, move to the ‘virtual world’ to maintain contact. One thing that didn’t change, was our resolve to support the local community. Using funds raised and contributions from individual members, we were delighted to sponsor two major projects.
The first was to present the Erith Riverside Shopping Centre with a Defibrillator. If it just saves one life, it will be well worth the investment.
Our second project was to raise funds to support our local St. John’s Ambulance Brigade and present them with ten new radios to replace their ageing equipment.
Both of these were presented in a very brief ceremony at the Erith Riverside Shopping Centre by our President Keith Wisdom, to Ryan Casey who manages the Shopping Centre and Dean Gardiner who leads the Erith St. John's Ambulance Brigade.
