Brian Law, John Turner and Tom Knight took 19 young carers with their supervisors to see Aladdin at Rotherham Civic Theatre on 22/12/2014. They had a great time and joined in all the shouting as did Brian, John and Tom. It was all topped off with a visit backstage to meet the cast who handed out Christmas presents. Here is a photo to prove it.

On Friday 28th November, it was the Wickersley School presentation evening, and President Graham attended along with Roger Green. As before, we supported two awards. The winner of “Services to Others Award” was Laura Wright.

Congratulations to Yogesh Bhimpuria, Roger Fearn and Ann Ogley who will take the position of Club President during the next 3 Rotary years. Particular congratulations to Ann who will be our first lady President.

We are collecting used postage stamps for recycling to raise money for our charities, please save your stamps and pass them on to one of our friendly Rotarians, please don't crop them too close to the stamp so as not to damage the perforations and generally leave no more than one centimetre around the edge of the stamp.

The latest heat was held on 25 November, hosted by Rotherham RC.
The scores (out of 80) were

Abbeydale 59
Rotherham 54
Rotherham Sitwell 65
Sheffield Vulcan 61
Wortley 50
Rotherham Sitwell and Sheffield Vulcan go through to the second round.
Our team was Derek Cheetham, Chris Croker, Paul Daniels and Chris Williams.

After a wet start on Saturday the weather was kind and it brought the people out in droves. If nothing else, it was good to make so many Rotherham folk laugh out loud and bring smiles to so many faces. We raised £179 for charity and all those who took part had as much fun as the ones paying for it.

Following on from last year, the second Gala Day at the Woodman Pub organised by our supported charity "Start a Heart" was a resounding success raising just over
£7500.

Another successful charity event, MITG raised approximately £36,000.

Marie Curie President Tom Cycle Ride

President Tom finished his year on a high, completing his 100 mile Aperetif du Grand Depart cycle ride around the Rotary Clubs of South Yorkshire in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. The event raised over £4000 for the Charity.

July, the start of the new Rotary year and the new President is Graham Hudson with Roger Fearn as his Vice-President.

The first potentially-lifesaving defibrillator funded by an appeal in memory of our Past-President Stuart Lister has been unveiled.

Stuart's wife Trish and daughter Carrie launched the "Start a Heart 24:7" Charity in memory of Stuart following his death last year from a heart attack.

The Games were attended by around 420 athletes. With carers, drivers, event management, families and friends, around 2500 people had a great day.

We have two major fund raising events left this year which need support from the whole club. May 23rd sees our golf competition at Wath. We have 12 teams entered but we could still do with a few more teams if we are to achieve our target of £2,000 to be raised from the event. If you are a golfer then please consider at least playing in the competition even if you can’t field a team.
