September news...

Last month was yet another busy one, with social events forming a large part of our fundraising efforts. Early in the month we paid a visit to the Wales Air Ambulance at one of their bases, Welshpool Airport. We were shown around the operations unit as well as the helicopter and this reinforced our commitment to supporting the charity in the future. Next event was another of our enjoyable “Frugal” lunches, hosted by members Eileen Myers and Dorothy Scott in Knighton, raising over £100. The following Wednesday a truly “Sumptuous Supper” was held and hosted by member Angie Ellis, which raised enough money to purchase a Rotary Shelterbox to provide support for those in disaster struck regions. In the last weekend of the month we had a stall at the Knighton Show to raise money for local causes and support the community. And on the last Wednesday another “Frugal” lunch was hosted by member Bruce and wife Sandie Morgan and raised nearly £200. These lunches, held partly because we do not have a formal lunch meeting venue currently, support our charitable efforts in the community as well as being great fun. If you would like to get involved in our social and “fun”draising activities, as well as make new friends, you are very welcome to come to any of our Wednesday meetings.
