Title: Christmas Collections
Post by: marty.c on December 28, 2017, 10:24:01 am
A big thank you to all that donated to Brookmans Park Rotary Club's Christmas Tree and Christmas Sleigh collections. we raised a fantastic 5,372.45 for the charities we support. This year we are supporting a local young boy named Harry Worrell. Harry has a form of Motor Neurone Disease called SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), a progressive disease which weakens muscles and causes movement problems. We are also supporting The Red Rubber Ball Foundation that provides educational support to orphaned and under-privileged children in Kenya. We also provide ongoing support to the WHO 'End Polio Now' initiative whose main contributors are the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Rotary.
