Rotary Club of South Cave &Wolds
We are a small friendly club, chartered in 1991. We work to raise funds and
support for local, national and international communities –
- In November we hold our annual Christmas Party for the residents of local care homes.
- We have close ties with St Anne’s Special School and every year the children are taken to
a local attraction as part of ‘Rotary Kid’s Out Programme.’
- We support Mires Beck Nursery, North Cave, with financial contributions and hands on
project work. Mires Beck is a registered charity providing opportunities for people who have
a learning difficulty or disability to be involved in a working horticultural nursery.
- Internationally, we purchase and supply survival kits (shelter boxes) to help in the
aftermath of worldwide disasters.
- We are currently continuing to sponsor a Nepalese student’s education through the
purchase of text books.
- One of Rotary International projects has been to support The Bill Gates Foundation
to eradicate Polio worldwide. We at South Cave and Wolds Rotary Club have played our
part in raising funds to help achieve this aim, we are almost there!
The Rotary Club of South Cave and Wolds is incorporated within the Maritime District
- Our District is raising funds to provide a children’s operating theatre in Freetown,
the capital of Sierra Leone and Hull’s twin city. Sierra Leone is still recovering from a
tragic civil war in the country which ended in 2001 and more recently the Ebola crisis,
which killed some 11,000 people.
Sierra Leone is about half the size of England and has a population of about 7million (Yorkshire 5.5 million), 3 million of whom are under the age of 10. It has a very high rate of infant mortality. The country has only one public hospital without any operating theatre designed for children and there are no surgical implements suitable for children’s surgery. However, it does have a totally unused room which could become a theatre.
There is a properly trained paediatric surgeon who is a Sierra Leone national.
Our concert this evening will help to raise funds for this much-needed medical facility.
