New Epping Rotary Club president joins forces with Epping mayor to support charities
Epping Rotary Club has welcomed Barbara Scruton as the club's new president.
She takes over the chain of office from Brian Rolfe.
Mrs Scruton has joined forces with Epping mayor Les Burrows to organise events to raise money for two charities during their year of office.
They hope to embrace the whole of the community by supporting the Heart of Epping appeal which is raising money for a community centre adjoining St John’s Church in St John's Road.
They are also supporting the national children’s Charity ‘bibic’ that helps children with any kind of developmental difficulty, therapists' work with families to design a therapy programme with the view of making the difficulties smaller and life at home and school more functional, manageable and fun for everyone.
The first fundraising event is a Garden Party in the Mayor’s garden on Saturday, August 13.
Other events are planned for later in the year.
