Lincoln Clubs Flood Collections previous     next

9 January 2016

A big thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the collections for the Yorkshire Flood Victims at Morrisons and Sainsburys on Friday and Saturday 8th and 9th January.

Following the encouragement of District Governor Margaret, the response from Rotarians in Lincoln was excellent considering arrangements were made on the Thursday 7th.

At Morrisons, the collection was over 4 trolleys full of cleaning materials donated by the public and at Sainsburys we ended with almost 8 trolleys full. This included materials bought with very generous cash donations of around £200 (made up of £125 in notes; £70 in one pound and two pound coins; and a handful of silver and copper. Sainsburys donated a £25 gift voucher and DG Margaret Taylor came to Sainsburys early on Saturday afternoon with a £100 donation from the Rotary Club of Spilsby, enabling her and Sheila Webb to do a £325 trolley–dash around Sainsburys collecting cleaning materials, buckets, mops, torches etc.

This was a tremendous effort by everyone involved. All the donated materials from around District 1270 were collected during the week by Rotarian James Wood (Lincoln Colonia) and have been transported by him to the flood relief centre at Todmorden on Sunday 10th.

.This was an excellent example of inter–club co–operation with all 4 Lincoln Clubs pulling together. We should do more of it.

Thanks to Rotarians Malcolm &Sheila Webb and the generosity of the customers of the Lincoln Branches of Morrisons &Sainsbury.
