President Bryan was the first on duty on Friday 5 December 2014 when the club started its Christmas Charity Collection at the Waitrose Supermarket in South Harrow.
Thanks to the excellent support received from the staff at Waitrose, we were able to set up our display boards next to the main entrance, and the public could see the photos of the projects we have been working on in the local community.
As we said last week, we apply every single penny that we collect from the public to projects for the elderly, projects for youth in our community, projects for the disadvantaged, and projects supporting our international work, including the eradication of polio and the control of the ebola outbreak. Several other “Rotary Supported Charities” will also benefit. Unlike so many organisations in our field, we make no deductions at all from the money donated by members of the public. All our costs are met by the members of the Club.
