The Rotary Clubs of Rugby

posted 21 Oct 2018, 04:13 by Bernard Purdy

For over 30 years, usually on the Sunday of the first Bank Holiday in May, a Sports Day is organised by these clubs. This involves hiring the whole of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre and the adjacent athletics track. Hundreds of competitors attend from around the midlands and beyond.
Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association provides some assistance, but the vast bulk of the work is done by:
                The Rotary Club of Rugby

                Rotary Rugby Dunsmore

They have now been joined by the Rugby rotary Satellite Club.
We are very grateful to all of them for their tireless work.

The Sesame Centre

Which is a Social Services centre for people with complex needs,  based at Fawsley House,organised a sponsored walk around Whitehall Road Recreation Ground  on 25th July. many of their customers walked round for lap after lap, whilst others were pushed round in their wheelchairs. 

This was a  charitable fundraising idea suggested by their customers, who also chose which  charities to donate the money to.

Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association (RSDA) was lucky enough to be one of the 3  charities chosen. A few of our members were able to attend on the day to offer thanks and support.

The result was an amazing £347 which was presented to us  on 21st August.

Many thanks to all those involved
