Community Service Objectives
This Committee has the responsibility to the Council and the Club for money raising efforts and for charitable donations. Although substantially curtailed during the Covid Pandemic, the Committee are again working hard to raise money through a number of events in which we hope we will receive the support, as in the past, of people in the Town and environs. Amongst others, we will bring Santa to the children of South Woodham Ferrers; to Asda and Sainsburys ; hold our Swimarathon in 2022 (in which teams swim to raise money for worthy causes); participate in the Village Hall’s celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee; and hold a Vintage Car Show.
We will continue to consider requests for donations, principally focusing on smaller Charities nearer to home and the needs of our Community. Our efforts in this regard does not focus only on monetary donations. For instance, through our Trees of Joy we have collected a considerable number of Toys and Books for children up to the age of twelve who otherwise would not have much to look forward to a Xmas. The significance of planting Crocus bulbs by early stage children in some of our schools, provided by Rotary, has helped them to understand the aim to eradicate Polio throughout the world. A lot to do; a lot to achieve
