Kingswood Rotary

KINGSWOOD Rotarians have regularly supported Children’s Hospice South West at Christmas time with a collection at the Tesco Superstore in Brislington. Tesco customers have always been very generous and this time £500 was donated in just one day. 

When Heidi Roberts, Area Fundraiser for CHSW, was presented with the cheque at Kingswood Rotary Club’s January meeting, she explained that £500 could pay for a forest school session for five bereaved families, which would give them time to remember loved ones and to support each other.

Kingswood Rotary Club, which includes members from Downend, Frenchay, Longwell Green, Cadbury Heath, Hanham and Almondsbury, is pleased to help such a worthwhile provision serving the South West.

Kingswood Rotarians have also been pleased to support a project abroad with a focus on young people. Over the past five years the club has funded the rebuilding of two rural schools using a bequest from Roy Stone MBE. The second of these schools was completed late last year, and the Rotary Club was happy to receive a letter of appreciation from the school.

Rotary Clubs work to serve the community and make a difference.
