THE club’s breakfast group is to present a cheque for £4,000 to Matt Bailey, of the Teenage Wilderness Trust, at its next meeting on November 10.
The money was raised at a dinner at Badgemore Park Golf Club earlier in the year when former James Bond director John Glen was the speaker.
The trust supports students who find it difficult to engage with mainstream education, often because they are unable to cope emotionally and physically with authority due to their personal lives and social development.
The trust works with Path Hill Outdoors, offering re-engagement courses using bushcraft and wilderness learning techniques along with practical life skills to encourage students to get back to their learning, in turn giving them a better chance of a positive future.
The breakfast group was started to widen the appeal of Rotary, making it accessible to people with limited time availability, who like an informal approach.
It also offers an opportunity for local businesses, who want to make a contribution to the community, to get involved.
We meet twice a month at Badgemore Park Park Golf Club at 7.45am for 8am and finish by 9am. The November 10 gather will be an open meeting, where members will be inviting guests interested in finding out about what we do.
