International Day of People with Disability

President Alan and the Hatton Foundation team supported our friends from the Northamptonshire Branch of the British Polio Fellowship as they maned an information stand at the Weston Favell shopping centre to mark the International Day of People with Disability on Saturday 3rd December. We were able to talk to a number of people about both the Rotary campaign to eradicate polio from the world and also about the polio survivors hydrotherapy project which they will shortly start at Moulton College, Northampton. Whilst doing this the branch members made contact with 2 other polio survivors who up to that point were unknown to them.

Visit To Bella Barista (Social Evening)

This was the the third of our trial social Rotary meetings away from the Golf Club and was at Bella Barista Coffee. We enjoyed a great evening of coffee tasting and a talk covering the growing and buying of coffee beans from all over the world, and we all enjoyed seeing the roasting and grinding processes. Our local host was Stephen Peel, who set up and runs the operation. We also enjoyed some delicious ale from a barrel Rob happened to bring with him.

maxresdefault

 

The Wellingborough Salvation Youth Group are supported by Hatton Rotary annually to attend a Music  school which is an  event for different divisions of the Salvation Army. Young people from the age of 12 upwards are able to get together for a week of music, fun activities and worship.

The main sections are band or singing with other activities to choose alongside such as art, worship media, sport. They also attend cell groups every day during the week where they discuss relevant topics and bible passages. Alongside this they make new friends and share experiences. At the end of the music school week they perform a concert and show video clips and photos of their activities.

Hatton Rotary are very proud of the individuals achievements especially the personal development and experience the Youth club members gain as a result of our sponsorship.

We encourage the young people to comment on their experience and we are delighted to receive the following feedback from this years event held in Nottingham.

Purple4Polio Collection

The amount raised during the recent Purple4Polio campaign was £420 (gross) (£395 from ‘donations’ and £25 raffle). That gives us £335 net which equates to some 2000 polio vaccine doses when you add the Gates Foundation uplift. Thanks go to Dick and Nigel who organised it and all those who helped.

DISTRICT GOVERNOR’S NEWS LETTER

Please see the latest news letter from the District Governor click..take-off-13

Purple4Polio

Many, many thanks for helping us to face the public, raise their awareness of polio and collect money in the Swansgate today. We distributed most but not all of our crocus corms  – there will be some left for next Tuesday – and we raised the grand sum of £286.21p. So if we deduct the purchase price of £85 that is a clear surplus of £201.21 which will translate into just over 1200 doses of vaccine when we add the Gates Foundation uplift.

Thanks go to Nigel and Sheila for bagging and tagging our corms and thank you Sheila and Jilla for pitching in during the day to help fill the gaps.

33rd Annual Burdwall Golf Charity

The 33rd Annual Burdwall Golf Charity held at Wellingborough Golf Club on Monday 19th September

 

We have held 32 excellent tournaments, and over the years raising well over £33,000 for deserving causes.  All proceeds this year again will be split between the HFT ( Home Farm Trust )which is A national charity dedicated to the care and development of adults with learning disabilities, and charities supported by the Rotary Club of Wellingborough Hatton.  Every single penny raised is guaranteed to go to those in need without any management or administration charges.

 

 This year teams  competed for  several cups and prizes for the morning and afternoon  rounds including an individual memorial trophy for Timmy Waller kindly provided by The Rotary Club of Wellingborough Hatton for the best 9 hole putting competition score.

 

A fantastic day was had by all albeit rather wet and soggy but the weather conditions did not distract from what proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable days golf. Special thanks go to Alan Waller and his organising team who again made the whole day thoroughly enjoyable.

Important Changes To The Apologies System

Further to the  discussions at the last business meeting Duncan has  agreed with Peter Hall, the Chef at the Golf Club, that we move the deadline for apologies to 12.00 pm on the day of our meeting however this was on the strict understanding this would be an absolute deadline with all apologies logged through the website. He will not accept any other method this allows him to be absolutely sure of an accurate number of members attending enabling him to make the appropriate calculations for the food preparation. As always if you do experience problems logging your apologies please call Duncan Forbes on his mobile who will help sort out the problem. Please note the deadline for Social Club Nights will vary dependent on the requirements of the organiser .
