The Community and Vocational Committee have supported the Windsor Observer newspaper annual Christmas Toy Appeal for many years through donations of new children's books. The books were given to children in need in the catchment area. In 2018 the newspaper did not promote this appeal, so to ensure our commitment to the community and to ensure local children received gifts at Christmas, the club decided to donate books to DASH, a charity which helps victims of domestic abuse.
The books were selected by Rotarian Martyn Gorton's wife Diana, who is a former teacher and school librarian and had contacts with the trade.
We were very pleased to donate over 60 new books to cover ages from babies to teenagers, this year adult books were also purchased for the Mums and Dads. This is just another example of our club doing good in the world and making a difference locally.
