A helping hand - Kingfisher Rotarians chip in for Where Next? charity

Redditch Editorial 18th Aug, 2019   0

REDDITCH charity Where Next? is £275 better off thanks to a donation courtesy of a ‘Fresh Start’ project organised by Rotary Clubs in the Heart of England.

The scheme came from an initiative proposed two years ago by the 2017 district governor Peter Roberts.

His aim was to forge stronger links across the heart of England with at least 19 charitable organisations that support people with learning difficulties or social problems.

Here in Redditch the Where Next? Association is doing just that, by providing programmes that lead to providing work experience, improving life skills and social opportunities to people with learning difficulties.

The Rotarians weren’t just raising funds either, but thanks to the wide range of skills among members, could offer practical help as well.

Last month Mr Roberts, a member of the Rotary Club of Kenilworth, travelled to Redditch where he and Pete Ramage, a past President of the Rotary Club of Redditch Kingfisher, visited Where Next? to present the cheque which represented the final distribution from the Heart of England 2017 Fresh Start Project.

The hope now is that the links developed with these charities continues to flourish with Rotarians providing both expertise and funding.
