Over one of the last weekends Andy Wuzik of Wuzikmuzik and a Friend of Rotary staged an outdoor event with other musicians at the Parkgate Inn in Bromsgrove and played music, raising the sum of £200 to support the fantastic work of Burnaid. Well done to Andrew and all concerned!
The Rotary Club is delighted to be able to support the fundraiser at Catshill Village Preschool with a donation of £200 for books for the children. We hope to visit the school in the new school year when it is appropriate to do so. With all good wishes to everyone at the Preschool!
A couple of us did the walk from Tardebigge Wharf to Stoke Prior and return yesterday following the Worcester-Birmingham Canal passing the Tardebigge flight of 30 locks which is the longest in the UK and the former Engine House. Tardebigge reservoir presents some very good views along the way, and there was plenty of wildlife to see. We were fortunate enough to see a heron fishing and a kingfisher in flight low across the water. Of interest to Club members is the commemorative milestone dedicated to Reverend Alan White just below Tardebigge Top Lock. Alan was a Club member and Rotarian for some fifty years and the vicar of Tardebigge Church prior to his death in 2017 at the age of 99. He was a great friend of the Club and to Rotarian Rosemary Troth in particular. Alan was an acclaimed canal historian amongst his many talents, and his wonderful history of the Worcester-Birmingham Canal is still a ready point of reference for canal boaters and enthusiasts.
Our Club appreciates fully that the Primrose Hospice needs community support more than ever in the current pandemic situation, given that a number of fundraising events have had to be postponed or cancelled. We have just made an immediate donation of £2000 to support the Hospice in continuing to deliver its much needed services.
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to be able to support Worcestershire For the Love of Scrubs with a donation of £500 to enable scrubs and scrub bags to be sewn and produced to help in the fight against coronavirus. We are very pleased also to be able to add a further £250 to this sum as a result of a Grant from our Rotary District. We applaud the efforts of all our workers in the NHS and care sectors.
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to have made donations to both Aquabox and Shelterbox recently. Our Club was supported by a District Grant from District 1060 in the sum of £1000, and the Club itself donated £1180 from its own charitable funds. Aquabox received a donation of £1000 to allow the manufacture of two community filters, two gold boxes and eight family filters. Shelterbox received a donation of £1180 to allow the manufacture of two shelterboxes. This much needed equipment will go to provide humanitarian aid to individuals and communities wherever it is needed in the world.
