A few months ago we held our 2nd annual comedy night. We raised funds to support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. The response we received from the Hospice explains why it is so important to help support them.
An opportunity was given to Harry’s Rainbow to have a “Sausage Sizzle” outside the new Bunnings DIY Warehouse in Winter Hill, Milton Keynes where Homebase used to be. The charity reached out to our Rotary Club to help them make the event successful. Read about the event here.
Our second successful comedy night that was put on to help raise money and awareness for Rainbows children's Hospice. The evening raised £1,000. The cheque was presented to Jess Dixon of Rainbows by Steve Howe and John Norton. The picture was taken by our very own Mike Potter.
Utilising the funds raised from our comedy night last year and other fundraising activities along with a matching district grant, the E-Club 1070 has been able to purchase a new boat for Northampton Sailability, based at Pitsford reservoir.
On Monday 27 March 2017 two club members visited the Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. The hospice started in 1994 after a couple lost their child and it now caters for children and young people up to the age of 26 though this is “flexible”.
On Thursday 19th of January, former E-Club president Steve Howe was featured on BBC Radio Northampton. Steve was interviewed on Stuart Linnell's Breakfast Show about the Boat we have recently bought for Sailability at Pitsford Reservoir.
The interest in how e-Clubs work and what they are capable of achieving is growing. This week. two members of the Club, Peter Borner and Barry Woods paid a visit to Bletchley Rotary Club to talk to them about eRotary.
