Primrose Hospice

Rotarians in Bromsgrove have supported the Primrose Hospice in the first week of 2022 with a donation of £1500. We acknowledge the sterling work carried out by our local Hospice and its staff and we recognize that opportunities for normal fundraising activities have been curtailed severely by the ongoing public health situation.

Fresh Support for Bromsgrove Foodbanks

Our Rotary Club is very pleased to be able to support our local Foodbanks again namely the Basement Project, Catshill Baptist Church and New Starts with a donation of £500 each to begin the New Year. As Rotarians we recognize that many people will be struggling to make ends meet after the festive period and given the ongoing problems caused by the public health situation.

30 Years in Rotary

It was a great delight to see Ken Pheysey presented with his certificate to celebrate 30 years of service in Rotary at our Christmas party held at the Maekong Thai Restaurant on 8 December. The event was the first time we have sat down together for a meal for a very long time due to the current public health situation, and everyone enjoyed the evening immensely. Very many congratulations to Ken as a role model for ‘Service above Self.’ Pictured left is Ken receiving the certificate from our President John Teece.

Bangladesh Latrine Project

Great progress has been made on our joint venture with the Rotary Club of Uttara in Bangladesh, and we are pleased to record that five new family latrines have been built in a rural area using funds supplied by the Rotary Club of Bromsgrove and its members. We are very fortunate to have Rotarian Faisal Sharif as one of our members who has worked hard to make the project a reality and has made the communication process between the two Clubs very simple.
