Rotary Club of Ramsgate

SPECIAL TREAT

Members of THE Club and the Inner Wheel joined forces to give a Sunday afternoon special time for about 40 elderly residents of local homes.
Rotarians provide transport for the guests to go on a mystery afternoon ride and ended up at Minster Village Hall where a sumptuous tea was awaiting them, prepared by Inner Wheel members.

Making Music and Song

Members of staff and Rotary at the presentation

Anybody using St Mildred’s Road, Ramsgate, may hear music which was not there before.
The chances are it is coming from the ‘Musical Box’ from “Sing for Their Lives’ and paid for by the Rotary Club.
It was handed over to the home by President Julie Miller, who decided to make the home her main charity for the year.

“I spoke to the home and it was felt this was a facility which they could really make use of. I even did a wing walk to make a personal contribution to the £1,200 we needed to purchase the box.
The machine can provide music for hundreds of tunes and hymns, with co-ordinated words appearing on a television screen.
There was not only singing at the presentation by residents and members of staff joined in some dancing sessions.

District Conference Success

An 11-strong party of Rotarians and their partners enjoyed an excellent annual district conference at Eastbourne.
At the Saturday night banquet and ball the cabaret was provided by Cheryl Baker.
Among a large number of speakers was Will Travers, President of Born Free and former protection officer to the Queen, Dick Griffin.
Perhaps the most moving presentation was by Tony Brown from Working Dogs, whose pet Hetty was able, among other things, to predict on-coming epileptic fits.
Next year’s conference will be in Bournemouth in October.

Where our
money went

The mission of Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education & the alleviation of poverty.

One of the main ways this is done is by funding humanitarian projects in the UK and worldwide.

The charity's single biggest aim has been to eradicate polio from the world.

£2000 boost

The week-long pop-up charity shop run in conjunction with Ramsgate Inner Wheel raised just over £2,000, a big rise on last year.
At the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club President Julie Miller thanked all those who had been involved.
Each of the clubs will receive just over £1,000 for their charity fund.
