Rotary Making a difference

As Rotary is a volunteer organisation! We can gaurantee we have the lowest possible costs and as such we can donate the absolute maximum to our chosen charities. This year, 2017 we are supporting "Footsteps Foundation" and "The African Children's Fund."

Footsteps 

Footsteps Foundation pays towards the costs of Footsteps therapy for those families that cannot afford it. The project funds between 15 and 80% of therapy costs, depending on household income. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for children and young adults affected by neurological disorders, enabling them to receive the intensive physiotherapy they need, regardless of whether their families can afford private treatment or not.

Footsteps therapy helps disabled children develop their physical abilities and helps increase their self-confidence.  The Family Grants project – whilst primarily benefiting disabled children – also has a significant impact on their parents and siblings by relieving financial strain on the family.  And, when a child can do more for themselves, that helps ease the pressure on daily family life.
