ROTARY CLUB OF

MAPPERLEY & ARNOLD

Many thanks to all who attended Christmas at the Prom’s on Friday December 15th in Woodborough Village Hall. £1000 was raised on the night, which will help towards the April 2018, Outward Bound week long residential course at Aberdovey, Wales. The club have supported this week for the last 19 years, sending just under 400 young people who might not get the chance of the experience. Boosting their self confidence and expanding their attitudes to “I can” rather than “I cannot”.

The Gary Bell evening held on 22nd November grossed £7000, which after expenses (food etc) netted down to £4750. The main replicant of this will be Hayward House, the clubs chosen charity appeal for 2017/18.

Next event will be a quiz, January 27th, 2018 in the village hall. Supporting Hayward House.

Information about the club can be found on our web site rotary-mapperleyarnold.org.uk

Thank you for your support from all the members.
