good causes at home and abroad.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - Important Announcement
Please be advised the Rotary Club have suspended all meetings until further notice. We wish to let everyone know the club is functioning albeit remotely but if you think the club can help in these challenging times please visit our website and use the contact us link.
To help those requiring food supplies via the local foodbank the club has initiated a campaign for all living in South Woodham Ferrers that are in need of the Foodbank support. To provide these supplies they need donations to ensure they can carry on with their excellant work. The club has set up an appeal on their Just Giving site where members of the public can make a financial contribution.
Please visit SWF Rotary Foodbank Appeal and make your donation.
SWF Rotary have answered a call to help minimise and protect the Clinical teams at Farleigh Hospice who are now doing palliative care in the community to help and support patients who have been infected with the Coronavirus.
We felt that in these challenging times staff who are faced with this work are giving above and beyond in nursing care and support where it is most needed. As our Rotary club earns funds from the community via the events that we organise we feel that we should answer a call to help them fund protective equipment they so badly need to do the sterling work that they do. Please visit SWF Rotary Farleigh PPE Appeal to make adonation.
