February 23rd was World-Wide Rotary Day, a chance for Rotary Clubs around the world to talk about what they do.
All clubs have had to adapt during the pandemic and Faversham Rotary Club is no exception. We might not have been so visible in the town as usual but we’ve supported local organisations with grants from our Covid-19 Emergency Fund, "topped-up" by three online quizzes which raised over £2,000 and were good fun!
The Club has targeted its support to groups working with young people and the elderly, with a focus on physical health and mental well-being.
We made Christmas happen, even though our annual Carol Tour didn’t! There were almost 8,000 views of the Christmas stories on our Facebook page.
Thanks to many generous donations we gave Christmas gifts to Faversham’s Young Carers and to the Almshouses residents. We also arranged some Christmas cheer for the senior citizens at Carnalea and Cooksditch.
Faversham Rotary Club will continue looking for ways to help its local community.
Please contact our Secretary if you think your organisation might benefit from Rotary help.
