Rotary supports local charities

Posted on : 30-06-2013 | By : Allan | In : News

 

24th May 2013- Following recent fund raising activities, on Monday night at The Holiday Inn, the Rotary Club of Lancaster donated a total of £3000 to three local charities. Cheques of £1250 were given to Denise Armer from Unique Kidz and Lynne Stafford from CancerCare,. A further cheque of £500 was donated to Sheena Marsden who represented the YMCA.

The Lancaster club has been busy raising this cash through a number of fund raising events that include a Race Night at the Globe Arena, Christmas Appeal collections from Santa’s Sleigh, a sponsored walk and a cycling event called Wrynose or Bust.

This last event raised over £4000 and attracted cyclists who took on the challenge of riding 118 miles through the hills of North Lancashire and South Cumbria. The middle of the route included the daunting 1100 feet ascent from sea level to the top of Wrynose Pass, this last section being a 25% incline.

In the last year, The Rotary Club of Lancaster has donated over £12000 to a number of other local, national and international charitable projects.

Local Rotary clubs are part of a global network of clubs, operating in 168 countries and numbering more than 1.2 million members and just like the Lancaster club, is made up of a collection of like-minded business and professional people, working and retired, who are prepared to give their time, their energy and their expertise to help raise and distribute funds for local and international charitable projects. And through the fellowship of our weekly meetings, we have a good time too.

There are currently five Rotary clubs in our area but wherever they are, Rotarians share the same goals; to serve the community, locally nationally and globally, while promoting the highest ethical standards.
