Month: May 2008
The last year was a successful one for the club’s Community Service activities, giving away a total of nearly £7000 to over a hundred worthy causes. We handed out £4156 at Christmas for the benefit of more than ninety individuals and families, who received case or cash plus a Christmas hamper.
The club also donated money to volunteers wanting to participate in educational projects in Mexico and South America. We bought a bike for a local lad who helped deliver prescriptions to the elderly of the area, but who had his original bike stolen.
