The Rotary Club of Sleaford Kesteven has donated £4,000 to the New Life Community Larder in Sleaford. (Half of the money came from money raised after last year’s Beer Festival and the other half from a Rotary Foundation (Charity) District Grant) President Karen is pictured presenting a cheque to Rod Munro, the Community Impact Coordinator and Anna Maltby. Food parcels have been labelled with Rotary Stickers with 120 parcels being delivered immediately. The money will provide a month’s worth of food parcels.
“With the help of fellow Rotarian David Hart, we helped to collect a food delivery from Aldi worth £900 and joined staff in topping up the crates ready for the next batch of parcels to be prepared,” said Karen. Demand for the Larder service has gone up seven fold in recent weeks.
Thank you to the residents of Sleaford and the local area for supporting the annual Beer Festival so that we can provide donations such as this. If permitted we are trying to hold this years in late September.
The Rotary Club of Sleaford Kesteven is continuing to collect aluminium cans in Ruskington and Sleaford. The one at the Winchelsea Car Park was full and has been emptied and the one at Hockmeyer Motors/Spa at Holdingham was also nearly full. So while you are on your essential journeys to shop, please remember to get rid of your cans this way. Please remember to use the crusher on the receptacle as we can get more can in this way.
Aluminium Cans Recycled
A BIG thank you to the residents of Ruskington and Sleaford (and the surrounding areas) for filling the collection boxes to help the Helipads For Hospitals Charity. There are three such receptacles – located at the St Georges Campus Ruskington, Girls High School Sleaford and the Winchelsea Centre Ruskington – and all were full when emptied on November 5th. The aluminium drinks cans will be recycled and the monies obtained used to help build a helipad at a local hospital. (The Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham and the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester do not currently have such facilities.)
Any aluminium cans can be recycled – drinks beer etc (but not food cans).
