Rotary club raise over £10,000 for Meningitis Now

17th January 2018

It’s no longer silver sixpences you find in Christmas puds – we found over £10,000!

Christmas puddings

That’s the amount raised from the festive season 2017’s sale of Christmas puddings by Cwmbran Vale Rotary Club - £10,250 to be precise.

A huge thank you to all the Rotarians involved in raising such a huge amount, and of course to everyone who purchased and no doubt hugely enjoyed their pudding.

By tucking into these you’ve helped us fight back against this devastating disease and moved us closer to our vision – where no one dies from meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need.

Over the previous three years pudding sales contributed £34,000 towards the Rotary Club’s chosen charities, including our ongoing research, campaigning, support and awareness work.

Really grateful

Our founder and Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow, Steve Dayman, said: “We’re really grateful to Cwmbran Vale Rotary Club for their generous support of our work again."

“Cwmbran Vale Rotary Club’s support makes such a difference to those who are at risk from meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it – thank you.”
