This week the Standard shines a spotlight on the work of Skegness Rotary Club which has collected over £40,000 in the last year alone.
From the local lifeboat and community larder - to their ongoing project of supplying defibrillators in Skegness - Rotarians are doing their to improve the communities of Skegness and surrounding areas.
They have even been out physically picking up litter for a beach clean in Skegness.
The money (listed below) was collected during Rotary’s year, which runs from July 2017 to June 30, 2018. Rotary’s community and vocational committee held various events throughout the period to raise the cash, such as the Santa fun run, a swimathon and ‘big breakfast’ events.
Skegness Rotary Club’s Andrew Downing, chairman of the community and vocational committee, said: “We also do community work such as ‘beach cleans’ ‘blood pressure awareness’ events and keeping the hospital gardens tidy.”
The club, which meets weekly at The Royal Hotel, Skegness, on Tuesdays at 6pm, is looking for new members.
