CHARITY SPEND

Not until we reviewed the last 5 years did we realise what a lot we have actually achieved.

At the same time as enjoying ourselves we raised £55,744 for the good of humanity. This sum was all spent to help:
· The Young
· The Old
· The Disadvantaged
· Enhancement of Careers
· Victims of Disasters
· Development of Life Skills such as public speaking, young chefs, and mock interviews for those about to leave school

Our MAJOR SUPPORT,

locally, nationally and internationally included:
· Naomi House (children’s hospice)
· Wheel Chair Foundation for Third World landmine victims
· Earthquake Appeal
· Local play area construction
· Falklands Veterans Association
· A local cancer trust
· Home Start Havant (support of families under severe stress)
· BASICS (doctors attending major road traffic accidents to stabilise
the patient at the scene which does save lives)
· Russian Orphanage
· Tsunami Appeal

OTHER SUPPORT.

Although smaller amounts have also been donated they meant a great deal to the recipients. In all there were 68 occasions over the 5 years where we have helped. In addition there were occasions when just a helping hand or the pointing in the right direction was all that was needed. We used our knowledge and connections all at no cost.
There is not enough room here to list all the ways we are helping. Suffice to say it is satisfying.
When you see a Rotarian holding a charity collection bucket, rest assured that your donation will go to supporting good causes. Every penny counts!
Any feedback you have will be welcomed.
