Joint Rotherham & Rotherham Sitwell Afternoon Tea

Joint Rotherham & Rotherham Sitwell Afternoon Tea

Following the successful bid to the South Yorkshire Community Fund it was decided to hold an afternoon tea at the George Wright Boutique Hotel to celebrate the work of the six organisations who shared the £5000 Grant.

Representatives from Rotherham Minster Social Supermarket, Rotherham Foodbank, Liberty Church, Full Life Church and Harthill & Kiveton Foodbank outlined how the award had enhanced their work. It also afforded an opportunity to share experiences and ideas. Unfortunately, the Salvation Army were unable to attend.

The event was also attended by President David Johns and Rotarian Giles Bloomer from Rotherham Rotary and President Steve Burns and Rotarian Martin Davis from Rotherham Sitwell Rotary. Masoba Kromah from the South Yorkshire Community Foundation was full of praise for the work being done for those in need in Rotherham.

The event was very relaxed and held under the teepee in the George Wright Courtyard. Add delicious sandwiches and cakes plus no rain and you have the recipe for a very enjoyable afternoon.

I would like to thank Rotarian Giles Bloomer of Rotherham Rotary for the hard work he put into the submission and making the collaboration a very positive experience.
