After several years of supporting local organisations and charities with small but important grants, the Rotary Club of Bolsover has taken the difficult decision to suspend the scheme.
The Covid-19 emergency has put enormous pressures on the support networks for local communities, and Bolsover and its surrounding area are no exception. When the crisis began the Club decided to give large donations to local foodbanks who saw a sudden and dramatic rise in demand for their services.
As a result of these donations our charity funds have been severely depleted, and rather than have to decline new applications for Community Grants, we have suspended the scheme for the time being. When the emergency is over, we will concentrate our efforts on replenishing our Charity Account, and look to resume the scheme as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we will of course meet our current obligations with funds that have been promised, and we apologise to others who may have applied in future, but we can only spend money once!
If you would like to make a donation to help Bolsover Rotary Club to restore the scheme, please contact us.
