Events & Activities (2017)

  • Legacy donation: The start to this year was marked by a very generous (and our first) Legacy Donation, through the will of a deceased family relative of one of our members. This amounted to £2,000 for which we are extremely grateful, these funds were used to finance the construction of 2 wells for needy communities.

  • Rotary Global Grant - Most of this year was devoted to pursing our Rotary Global grant application and responding to the various enquiries posed by The Rotary Foundation.

  • Two more wells funded! - During the course of the year we received pledges for the construction of 2 further wells.

  • AGM - please download the annual report for full details of last years events.

  • September 2017 - The trustees authourised the construction of 4 wells using the funds donated during the course of this year.

  • October 2017 - Rotary district 1145 conference in Bournemouth, this was again a busy conference for us, with many clubs showing support and enthusiasm for our cause. We welcome the opportunity to visit them in order to make formal presentations.

  • October 2017 - 4 wells completed and inaugurated. KKm were delighted to advise us that the 4 recently commissioned wells had been completed and these were visited and inaugurated by 2 of our team members. As usual the construction quality was impeccable and it was clearly obvious that they brought relief to needy communities.

  • November 2017 - Success! - The Rotary Global Grant has been officially approved, taking the total funds available to USD $56,166. We hope to finance construction of at least 35 wells with these monies and thank our partners RC Whitburn and RC Colombo for their enduring support. Especial mention and thanks should be given to Rotarian and Past District Governor Alistair Marquis (RC Whitburn), Rotarians Tajammul Abidally and Thirunavukarasu Someswaran (both RC Colombo) for their enduring support, advice and patience throughout this process. We will ensure the complete success of this project and are planning the next!
