 2014/2015 Proposed Activities

Our activities have two themes

Firstly it is our intention to continue with:

a. Raising funds at the Canal Day on 5 October to support Katharine House Hospice and other local charities.

b. The Xmas street organ charity collection at Sainsburys and Tesco and hopefully Aldi during December. Dates have yet to be agreed.

c. The provision of stewards at the Banbury Show.

d. Hosting a party for the blind and partially sighted including ‘chauffeuring’ our guests—probably in early May.

Secondly

e. To consider requests for financial help especially from those truly deserving causes , where a little help can make significant changes to local individuals/small charitable organisations.

f. To support requests, where possible, from locally centred charities and service organisations to provide help in running their events. Examples of this would be assisting as stewards/marshals/ manning checkpoints.

Sadly it is not always possible to support all the requests for help with the finite resources we have available to us.

To deliver on all these activities requires all Rotarians to continue to give up a little of their time and energy, the results of which can be truly satisfying and great fun achieving.
