Lorraine would like a hand . . .
Can your club rise to the occasion and support STV and Lorraine Kelly, one of the Appeal’s Trustees?
In this, the Charity’s first year, the focus will be on supporting children of all ages disadvantaged in any way. Every region throughout Scotland will receive aid and there’s more.
Rotary has been invited to nominate potential causes for next year and that gets us to the frontline.
Why not organise a sponsored silence with schools or a mile of coins — simple but effective events that will raise the profile of Rotary and bring in the money? The Festive Season provides an ideal platform.
This is a Scottish problem — let Rotary Clubs of the nation help solve it.
Lorraine Kelly told Rotary for Tomorrow: “Thanks so much to Rotary and to everyone who donated. Once again people in Scotland have shown incredible generosity and it will make a real difference to the lives of so many children.”
Rotary is swift to react to tragedies in many corners of the world.
But here in Scotland there is a tragedy right under our noses.
And what’s Rotary doing about it?
Did you realise that one in four of Scotland’s children either live in poverty or are disadvantaged?
Thankfully, STV, in association with the Sir Tom Hunter Foundation, has focussed on this problem and their 2011 Appeal is underway.
Launched in September, after a summer of fundraising, the Appeal is already close to having raised £1,500,000 — and it’s set to rise further.
The three Rotary Districts in Scotland have already donated, through clubs’ individual fund raising events.
Sir Tom Hunter added: “This is fantastic news for Scotland, fantastic news for the STV Appeal and most importantly brilliant for the young people who will benefit from the public’s huge generosity. Well done Scotland.”
Every single penny donated by the public will be used to help the most vulnerable children right here in Scotland.
As a part of the Rotary in Scotland initiative, forwarded by District 1020 Clubs throughout Scotland have raised funds for this appeal’
Ullapool, Aberdeen and Edinburgh Breakfast Club have added to the funds with events and collections.
