Devizes Rotary Club Fundraising for local and international good causes

The past month or so has been very busy for the Devizes Rotary Club in the run up to Christmas.

For example at the end on last month Alan M organised a meal at the 1Spice Indian Restaurant here in Devizes. A great time was had by all, and over £700 was raised for the Rotary Foundation charity.

As well as helping to prepare for the event, they also ran one of the many stalls selling food to visitors who were searching for Christmas presents among an assortment of gifts on display.

In addition the club lent its marquee for use throughout the event, and sponsored one of the trees in the Christmas Tree Festival:

All profits from the Rotary Food Stall were donated  to the  Omnes Ad Unum (All for One) group which  was set up last year to raise money for the community and the Church.

Here’s a clip from the event which was used by the BBC and is on its facebook and twitter accounts:
