An intrepid team of 9 volunteers from Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club braved the torrential downpours on Saturday morning to lend a hand to Longridge Activity Centre. As part of the clubs commitment to supporting local charities and community groups the team rolled up their sleeves and helped to clear thousands of leaves from the site, ready for the winter break.
Working all through the morning they raked, shovelled, wheelbarrowed and tidied up the area by the river, making it safe for users of the centre, based just outside Marlow.
Elisa Harris, club community officer, commented “we are a very active Rotary Club with a key focus on volunteering in our local area and it’s great to see members turn up and enjoy themselves, even when the weather is against us.”
Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club are very active in the local community with regular volunteering commitments with FoodShare, Longridge and in the not too distant future The Animal Sanctuary UK. The 45 member-strong club also organises its own events include the upcoming Reindeer Racing Fundraiser, The Health Awareness Day in January, The Easter Family Fun Day in Grenfell Park and many, many others to improve the local community.
“We’re always looking for new members to join our club and get involved in local projects, whilst at the same time as meeting new people, networking and enjoying the many social activities we organise. So if this sounds like fun to you, get in touch with us today” Elisa continued.
