Welcome to the new Rotary Year 2022-23

We are still very conscious of how fundraising has hit the charitable sector and where possible we are still striving to support good causes.  The floral boats around the town have been replanted with summer bedding and the colours are beginning to show through and looking good despite the very hot weather.  This is Rotary at it's best, helping out in the local community and being part of this fantastic town of Saltash.  We have over the past few months being doing lots of refurbishment to various areas of the Town, especially the Waterside so residents can sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  Our latest task to refurbish the old telephone box outside the station building has been a huge challenge.  More than 8 coats of old paintwork had to be removed before we could even start to undercoat.  All the glazing has been removed, cleaned and hopefully most of it will be able to go back into the phone box.  We have purchased a Defibrillator to go into the box with the help of a grant from Saltash Town Council and our Rotary Grant Fund.  We would not be able to achieve such works without the committment of our membership who have put many hours into the project, especially during the very hot weather. Thank you all.

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.
