Although Oswestry Cambrian Rotary, like many other groups and charities are responding to the dreadful situation in Ukraine, they are also maintaining their support for local worthy causes.
Pictured is club president Anna Pugh making a donation of £500 to Lynsey Kilvert from Hope House children’s hospice near Oswestry. Anna remarked that; “We are redoubling our fund raising efforts so that we can continue to help local organisations whilst at the same time sending much needed financial support to those dealing with the horrific consequences of the war in Ukraine. “
Hope House Children’s Hospices exist to make sure that no one faces the death of their child alone.
They support more than 750 local families who are either caring for a terminally ill child, or whose child has died.
It costs £7.5 million every year to run their services and 86% of this is spent on care. Approximately two month’s income comes from statutory sources and for the other 10 months of the year they are dependent on public support.
The Oswestry Cambrian Rotary is ready to welcome individuals and couples of 18+ from the local community who want to be “people of action”. We meet face-to-face at The Wynnstay Hotel, Church Street, Oswestry on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm and meet up in the bar. Alternatively, people can join the meeting from wherever they are via our Zoom account connection.
