Welcome to a new Rotary year July 2021 - June 2022

We are still very conscious of how fundraising has hit the charitable sector and where possible we are still striving to support good causes.  One of our members has turned her artistic skills to creating slate name plates for homes and other properties (including the refurbished railway station) and she continues to do this at a very reasonable price.  The floral boats around the town have been replanted and are looking fantastic.  We were delighted to have been able to attend SaltFest in the Town and had our CD and book stall.  All members very much enjoyed out "first outing" since lockdown.  We were able to continue help in the community and took over the Ashtorre Rock Cafe during the Regatta weekend.  Raising funds with our own cake stall as well as running the tea and coffee area for the Ashtorre.  This is Rotary at it's best.  Helping out in the local community and being part of this fantastic town of Saltash.  We are delighted to be able to run our Fish and Chip Quiz night in October, usually run by one of our members, who is a little under the weather at the moment but some of our other members will making sure that this event continues this year.  Our funding raising will be for JunkYard which is a group organising events and activities for young people.  Please support it if you can - details below.  Thank you for all your support so far this year and continue to stay safe

Toilet block project Uganda website

 

Back in 2016, while I was Saltash Rotary President for the first time, we have a great idea to partially fund a toilet block and solar panel project at a school in Uganda.  Two of our Club members had been teaching at this school for some time. This school had no toilet facilities at all. Well, in fact they did, but it was just a hole in the ground.  Something so basic! What we in the UK take for granted.  In conjunction with the local Kabarole Club the project has finally been opened just a few weeks ago.  The total cost was over £30,000 and we are extremely grateful to all our support partners including Rotary Global Grant and Rotary District 1175 as well as members of our own club here in Saltash.  It has taken a huge amount of time and effort over the past 5 years to get the project to it's conclusion.  Thank you again everyone who has been involved, especially Sally, Keith and Brian who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes.  Brenda Samuels

                    

 

We have just sponsored the uniform for trainee Critical Care Paramedic Martin for the next 12 months.

 We wanted to get involved after visiting the airbase last year.

It was brilliant that we were able to see first hand the work of the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
