Wimborne Rotary Club helps disabled people
MEMBERS of Wimborne Rotary Club who paid a visit to Holton Lee recently included the club’s immediate past president, current president and president-elect. They unveiled a plaque marking the presentation of £1,500 worth of teak patio furniture funded by the club. It comprises two tables, 12 chairs and two umbrellas for use by Green Island Holiday Trust and others visiting the venue that provides respite holidays for the disabled.
In addition, Wimborne Rotary president John Slow presented two cheques for £4,000 – one to Jo Davies, chairman of trustees of Green Island Holiday Trust, the other to Vicky Rhodes, the director of Holton Lee. The money was part of the proceeds from the recent closure of the Wimborne branch of Dorset Association for the Disabled, of which he was a trustee.
Roy Salmon said: “Our club has been supporting holiday breaks for the disabled for many years including, more recently, at Holton Lee which is an excellent venue with its great facilities for disabled people. Our involvement with Green Island Holiday Trust through our president-elect Derek Radley, himself a carer for the Trust, has given a new dimension to the holidays through their wonderful one-to-one care during holidays which means that the full-time carers can themselves have a holiday break as well.”
