We collected £5278.00!
We are overwhelmed with how much people so generously gave this year to our TREE OF GOODWILL collection - AKA Father Christmas collection.
Without expectation of how much we would raise, in advance we purchased 600 £10.00 food vouchers which were distributed to the food banks in Lewes, to be given to families in need at Christmas.
Thank everyone for making this possible!
The Rotary Club of Lewes was established in 1923. Much fellowship and service has been achieved by many Rotarians over these years. The Rotary motto "Service above Self" has been no idle phrase. The following will tell you how the Rotary Club was established in Lewes, its interests and actions. We are a Service Club, that is to say our members give freely of their time to raise money for projects both local and international and also to provide direct help to local people in need. Our Club currently has over 40 members giving us a great opportunity to serve both at home and Internationally.

Rotary Supporting Ukraine
When the call went out that victims of the war in Ukraine needed warm clothing for the winter, the members of our Club didn't hesitate to donate, and this weekend we dropped off SIXTEEN large black sacks of clothes to the collection point.
Rotary Supporting Ukraine
Please help the refugees from Ukraine. Every penny you give goes directly to those in need. Rotary (Southern England, UK) is matching the first £10,000.
