Latest news

Early in 2019, The Rotary Club of Stratford on Avon chose to support the Coventry and Warwickshire Group with a generous donation of £3,000 to provide equipment for local people living with MND. These funds were raised by local fundraising and by a grant of £1,000 from the Rotary Foundation.

Since receiving the donation in April, £2,000 has been applied to the purchase of three riser/recliner chairs and a contribution towards a mobility scooter, all to people living in the Stratford area.
