August is always a busy time for Rotary clubs and our car boot sale at Adur Recreation Ground on Saturday proved to be a time for a stalwart band of Worthing Rotarians to set up, steward and clear up a fantastic event.
The resulting profit of just more than £888 proved a very worthwhile fundraiser.
Our bank holiday carnival, which takes place in Steyne Gardens on Sunday, August 26, and Monday, August 27, will be one of our biggest events when we raise funds for the very many local needs which we support regularly.
Bring your pennies (and pounds!) and we hope to see you for a fun-packed two days.
Also in the news – a standards probe into an ex-mayor has been closed by private investigators, work is continuing on a cable route for the Rampion wind farm, and Deliveroo has announced it is set to roll out its services in Worthing.
It has been very rewarding to look back over the past year and to see just how many amazing causes we have been able to help with donations, including Canine Partners, the National Autistic Society, families in debt or in need of household goods, refugee families, youngsters volunteering to work abroad, Superstar Arts, Little Laurels Nursery, Worthing Rugby Club girls section for their tour, new T-shirts for the Youth Council, training for Forest School for Lyndhurst School staff, Abbeyfield Ferring Society, Worthing Churches Homeless Projects and Worthing Foodbank.
We are looking forward to helping many more very worthwhile projects and individuals over the next year but this can only be achieved through the generous donations that we hope to receive through events such as the bank holiday carnival.
Come and enjoy yourselves and know that by giving your loose change you are playing an important part in helping others less fortunate.
