THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Coronavirus

We support Local, National, and International Charities and the past year has been difficult. Like many other organisations our activities have been suspended but we are supporting the community where we are able.

In addition to funds available from past events, members have been topping this up with personal donations. We have recently donated money to a number of charities including Newbury Cancer Care and Swings and Smiles, see full list below.

Some members have also been involved with Berkshire Visions one to one befriending scheme and keeping in telephone contact with visually impaired elderly persons unable to get out.

Whilst our normal fund raising activities have been restricted, Thatcham Rotarian and Immediate Past District Governor Frank Quinn has produced a CD Music Album called Blue Hearts and Purple Flowers. Frank has been interviewed on Kennet Radio where they played two of the tracks, there are ten in total.

Copies are available from Amazon Music and YouTube and the money raised supports charities Hope and Homes for Children and End Polio Now.

We have donated over £11,750 since last years March Lockdown (see list below), and Frank Quinn has donated £3000 to his listed charities.

 During Feb and beginning of Mar crocuses can be seen at a number of locations around Thatcham (Bluecoat School, West Berks Hospital, A4 Henwick Fields) These have been planted to brighten up Thatcham with a reminder Spring is on the way, but also to raise awareness of the Rotary's End Polio Now Campaign.
