The Rotary Club of Chipping Sodbury announced today that it will continue to support the ‘Caring at Christmas’ Chariity. Rotary have been involved for a number of years and would also like to encourage other local organistions and individuals to make donations to this very worthy cause.
‘Caring at Christmas’ helps homeless people throughout the year and over the week of Christmas they run a Christmas Shelter for homeless or vunerably housed people in the Bristol area.
The Rotary Club support the charity by donating various items of food, toiletries, Clothing, Bedding, Linen as well as DVD’s, Books and Games. By helping in this way the Club can make a difference to some of the 10,000 people who sleep rough in the UK.
Rotary is the largest private sector contributor to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Other partners include the World Health Organisation and UNICEF, which battles against a number of difficulties including geographic isolation, armed conflict, cultural barriers, worker fatigue and poverty.
Caring at Christmas relies on donations to run the emergency shelter at Christmas as well as its year round work.
