Ukraine Emergency Appeal Saturday 5th of March.






Even collecting donations can be fun, the rotary clubs and friends were out in the town on Saturday 5th of March collecting for The Ukraine Appeal.
As always the generous people of Andover delivered, with a grand total of

£4066

being dropped into the collector's buckets.






July marks the start of the next Rotary year, the club are already planning for another busy fundraising year with many events being slotted into the program.

As always we are looking for new members to support these activities, all we ask is an enthusiastic and fun outlook, aligned with a desire to support our local community.

Click on the envelope at the bottom of the page and we will be in touch.

The Club has made a donation of £1000 to the local branch of Riding for the disabled. The club president Richard Mason presented the cheque which will help support local riders. Andover is a major centre of special schools and in Hampshire a number of these make use of the facilities of the facilities available at the RDA riding centre. Further information on Andover Riding for the Disabled can be found on their website www.andover-rda.org.uk.

Barry is GO!


North of Andover town is an area of community forest know as Harmony Woods, this is a 12 acre section of the Diamond Wood which has been set aside to be planted by the community. The planting is led by local children who normally bring their trees to the site in late November. The CV19 pandemic stopped this happening in 2020 and an appeal was made for volunteers to help plant the remaining batches of trees. When completed approximately 10,000 trees will have been planted on the site.




Back in November 2020 the club decided to offer assistance to complete the planting, their efforts were postponed for a number of reasons but finally on Monday 15th of March a working party turned up, appropriately masked and ready tor a day of scocially distanced digging.

We planted Oak, Birch and Wild Cherry trees and look forward to going back on a regular basis to see how our ‘babies ‘ are doing.
