2018/19 charity donations

in

At the end of President Sue’s year in April 2020 the club decided which charities and organisations should benefit from the money raised during the year. Because of the pandemic we were unable to hold our usual presentation evening but we have made sure the various organisations have received their monies to help them with their invaluable work during these troubled times. The organizations/ charities benefiting to the tune of nearly £3000  are Rossendale Hospice,  Bury Hospice,  Shelterbox,  Ramsbottom Cricket Club Junior Foundation,  FortAlice ( Bury Women’s Aid),  Greenmount Dementia Cafe, S.I.G.B.I.Project in Nepal, Little Voice and a very recent donation to buy material for making scrubs for the NHS.

We always have a collection at Christmas in lieu of sending each other Christmas cards. We raised £200 and decided to use this to buy much needed supplies to help a local charity Bury Homeless Project who do some sterling work in the area. President Sue and President Elect Ann went shopping and this is what we bought! Also pictured is Ann handing over the goods to Suzanne form Bury homeless Project. We also intend helping where we can with a new venture of converting a double decker bus into a shelter for the homeless.

We are very pleased to announce that we have recently agreed to sponsor a team at our local football club. Ramsbottom United FC have formed a new team – Under 7s girls and their coach, Alan Keane, put out a request on Facebook looking for someone to sponsor them to enable them to purchase kit and training tops. We responded by offering to pay for all their requirements! We have our name blazoned across the front of the shirts as well as on the back of the training tops. The pictures shows the girls wearing the kit at a recent training session, Alan Keane. their coach and several members of our club. We even got an article in our local newspaper, the Bury Times.
