A brief summary of some of the charity work we have done over the past two years.

Youth competitions - funding and organising Young Musician, and Young Photographer competitions

Kids Out – taking disadvantaged children identified by the 3 schools in Milford Haven for a day out at Folly Farm - we took 70 children in 2018!!

Young Carers - organising a pre- Christmas bowling evening and supper.

Community

Direct financial and manpower support of deserving causes both for individuals and local organisations

 e.g. H.O.P.E., DPJ Foundation, Pill Social Centre, Milford Haven Youth Matters, Milford Haven Carnival, Air Ambulance Wales.

Very occasional exceptional support for individuals in challenging circumstances - 

We managed to get support from both the South Wales Rotary District and a Rotary District in Philadelphia to support the travel and expenses costs for Megan Sadler to have a specialised operation for scoliosis ( distortion of the spine) which was routinely practiced ( 150 times ) in the centre of excellence in the USA, but not available in the UK. 

International 

We occasionally run special fund raising events for international support joining projects carried out by Rotary International including Polio eradication, and disaster support - ShelterBoxes and post-disaster recovery projects such as provision of fishing boats, training and local support in Indonesia and Vanuatu.
