Pictures from Events taken throughout 2021

April
RVS Bench refurbishment

Our club members helped the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) refurbish their Wokingham cafe benches. This is another example of how our Rotary Club supports the local community.

Christine Callaghan of the RVS, in the photo, was delighted with the results when Rotarian Tim Pascall delivered the benches to the cafe. If you would like to help #Rotary with projects like this and make new acquaintances and friendships, send us an e-mail via the Contact Us tab above.

Saplings Planting at JAC

We have planted more than 100 metres of tree saplings to eventually form a green barrier at the Just Around the Corner (JAC) site near Hurst. This work is one example of  the commitment to our local community. We completed the work with volunteers from Rotary Club of Reading Thames, Reading Maiden Erlegh Inner Wheel Club and other willing helpers. If you would like to get involved with projects like this, please send us an e-mail via the Contact Us tab above.

 

March
Purple4Polio

Purple crocuses planted by the pupils of the Oaks Interact Club at Crosfields school in Reading are now in glorious bloom. So are those we planted at the JAC Centre, Camp Mohawk and Winnersh Primary school, planted by the children. The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary's worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, the colour representing the dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised. See www.rotarygbi.org/projects/purple4polio for details.

Delivery to RBH

This week our #Rotary club provided a supply of  individual drinks to the Royal Berkshire Hospital's Wellbeing Centre as part of our Covid-19 Community Support. The Wellbeing Centre provides much needed respite for vital #NHS staff working tirelessly in these times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Club President Richard Nicholson (left) and Scott Trathen (back right) delivered the drinks. Tap the Contact Us tab above if you would like to help us with similar activities.

Gazebo for Covid Vaccination

We have loaned a Rotary gazebo to the waiting area for Covid-19 vaccinations run by Chalfont Surgery in Lower Early. It is located in the car park of The Salvation Army Centre where vaccinations are taking place by the Chalfont Surgery. Sarah Rutland the surgery manager was delighted to have the shelter from the rain for the volunteers doing invaluable work to aid the vaccination of Lower Early residents
