A big thank you to all who have donated already
As we all know times are hard, some harder than others.
We had an email from Mr. Tony Theo who has a scheme to help the people not as fortunate as us.
Do you know a person or family struggling at this present moment ?.
If you do please pass their names on, so we can help in any way possible.
This is where you the members can help, any canned food, dry food etc not perishables you can spare even a tin of beans, please bring to the club round the back, a box has been provided.
This will then get delivered to RSS Logistics for distribution.
You have till the end of lockdown 30th November to bring in anything you feel might help.
I think most of us in our lifetime have met someone or been someone who has struggled to find money for basic food to put on the table.
There are also some people who are lonely and as all the bars and restaurants are closed, give them a quick call to make sure they are alright.
How many of us have lost someone who has ended their life and said “I was going to see how they were next week” so let’s do it NOW.
So please use the club as a drop off point to help others.
