Coronavirus Relief Effort

We are working with other Rotary Clubs in the Reading area to help relieve the suffering and hardship caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. In addition to helping the Link Visiting charity, Berkshire Vision and the Reading Association for the Blind with friendly telephone calls to vulnerable people, we and the Rotary Club of Loddon Vale are buying much-needed food each week for the Woodley Food Bank. The ASDA store in Lower Earley, Waitrose in Woodley, the Hare Hatch Sheeplands farm shop and Brakes in East Reading are helping us with supplies for this. 

 Members of our club are helping out at Hare Hatch Sheeplands Farm Shop by taking customer orders and getting supplies delivered safely to elderly and vulnerable local residents. It's all part of our Coronavirus Relief Effort, which includes cash donated the Royal Berkshire Hospital "Staff Well Being Centre". The "Well Being Centre" is a place for rest and recuperation set up inside the RBH for their staff who are putting in long and exhausting hours to respond to COVID-19 pandemic. 

If you would like to help us raise funds for our Coronavirus Relief Effort your donation will be very welcome.
