Rotary Club supports The Shakespeare Hospice in Southam

The Rotary Club of Southam 2000 has raised £1185 to buy a Syringe Drive for The Shakespeare Hospice. The Syringe Drive allows the hospice nurses to regulate a constant feed of medicine to a patient over a 24 hour period in their own homes.

A Syringe Drive is often used towards the end of a patients’ life and helps them to feel more comfortable. Hospice at Home Nurse, Chrissie MacDonald says “Although they are very expensive items, they are invaluable to the team and to the patients that use them. This is the third Syringe Drive our hospice has.”

Members of our club helped out the Stroke Association today (Sunday 12th March), supplying marshalls for their 'Resulution Run' in Arrow Valley Park, Redditch. The event combined, 5k, 10k and 15k courses around the park's lake and pathways, and as well as raising funds for this important cause, encouraged Redditch people (and their dogs in some cases) to get active and put a 'spring' in their step.

Over 280 people took part, and as soon we know how much money was raised, we'll provide an update on this site.

No Brexit woes for Kinver Santa

Brexit certainly has not affected the generosity of the people of Kinver, Enville, Wollaston, Wall Heath and Kingswinford. On the run up to Christmas they gave more than £7,200 to Kinver Rotary Club’s Christmas sleigh, smashing all previous totals.

Not only did the nine nights of house to house collections, donations from schools and support from customers in the village’s pubs and restaurants take the total through the £7,000 barrier, it also reflected a 10% increase on last year’s figure and 7% more than the previous record of 2014.
