Foodbank

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.

This week marks 1 year since Rotherham Sitwell Rotarians started their weekly Foodbank run. Each Tuesday they have been a familiar sight outside Morrisons, Parkgate collecting food for various Rotherham foodbanks.

23rd October and our work supporting local foodbanks continues. This latest photo shows President Trish with Roger and Steve together with their banners on another collection run to Morrisons at Parkgate.

We were approached recently by Wortley Rotary offering to supply visors and masks to Rotherham food banks. Long standing Wortley Rotarian Lewis Atkinson has negotiated the supply of over 10,000 items of PPE to those in need throughout South Yorkshire.

Rotarians Roger Green and Steve Burns, who have been doing the bulk of the work collecting and delivering food to Rotherham Foodbank and other charities, have been nicknamed Batman and Robin by District Rotary. I wonder why? (see photo) Well done to the Dynamic Duo for all their hardwork and commitment to Rotary (Service above Self).

Rotherham Sitwell Rotary Club is raising funds to support local food banks during this pandemic crisis. Please spare a few pounds to help us. Attached is an article from the Rotherham Advertiser giving more details of the work being done by Rotherham Sitwell and Rotherham Round Table.We have also been joined in this effort by Rotherham Rotary Club.

To mark Rotary Day on 23rd February members donated 253 non-perishable food items to Rotherham Foodbank. This weighed in at 120kg and represents a full day’s supply for people in need in Rotherham. Thank you to everyone in the Club for your support which hopefully will become an annual event.
