Over the last twelve months, despite the pandemic’s restriction of fundraising activities, Retford Rotary Club was pleased to distribute over £51,000 to people in need and to help the local community. The Club has focused on the need of those hardest hit by Covid.
The major beneficiaries were
Local schools and youth activities Young Carers Agencies providing for the homeless Women’s Aid Food Bank Local Hospices
A number of individuals and other local causes were also assisted.
Whilst most of the donations were spent locally, the Club has also assisted people in need overseas in a variety of ways. Support was given to hundreds of primary school children in South Africa. The Rotary Club has continued to support the world-wide eradication of polio.
