Members of the Rotary Club of Till & Glendale had a full agenda to discuss, with business ranging from deciding which causes to support over the forthcoming Rotary year to arrangements for their Christmas meal.
Our local causes will be the Wooler Drop-in Centre and Berwick Young Carers, with practical support being offered to the North Northumberland Hospice and Barndale School. Nationally it was agreed to donate to Canine Partners (who provide assistance dogs to disabled people) and to Ovarian Cancer Research. The decision on international charities was deferred to a later meeting.
It had been agreed at a previous meeting to participate in the Alnwick RC 100 Club, and the ticket was passed on to the Treasurer for safe keeping. A thank you letter and receipt had been received from the Hospice for last year’s donation to them.
The wording for an associate membership agreement was considered and then deferred to a later meeting as the wording needed revision to reflect the character of Till & Glendale Club.
It was also agreed to participate in the Rotary District Car Draw; clubs will receive 25 per cent of proceeds from ticket sales.
