More COVID-19 grants awarded by the Rotary Club of Faversham
The Rotary Club of Faversham recently set aside a sum of money to help local not-for-profit organisations which had been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The funds were boosted by two Zoom quizzes which raised over £1400.
Grants totalling £3,250 were distributed in September and a further £1,500 has now been awarded.
Successful applicants for the second round of grants were AgeUK Faversham to help fund their "Daily Sparkle" newsletter, Davington Priory Cricket Club for screens to help make their clubhouse Covid-safe, Serv (Kent Blood Runners) for PPE masks, and Cinque Ports Rowing CIC to fund additional tutor-led workshops to make up for the reduced working-group sizes.
Jude Sach, Director of Cinque Ports Rowing CIC said "Thanks to support from the Rotary Club of Faversham, our project has been able to adapt to the new socially-distanced style of operation. We have reduced group sizes and extended our plans to allow our participants to work safely as they collaborate to build St Ayles Skiffs for our local community to use for social and competitive rowing. Without your help the project could have been delayed or, potentially, suspended indefinitely. We are tremendously grateful for the financial help you have provided!"
Details of our next Zoom quiz on Friday the 11th December and how to support The Rotary Club of Faversham Trust Fund will be published here shortly.
