On Tuesday February 19th at Cuddington Golf Club, Chair Judy Sarssam was delighted to receive a cheque from the President of the Rotary Club of Banstead, David Martin, on behalf of the Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper. A group of volunteers at the Rotary Club raised £12,675 for local charities over the Christmas period.
We are very grateful to Banstead Rotary Club for their generosity in donating some of their Christmas charity collection to the EETN, which they have generously divided between five local charities.
It was a great pleasure to meet the recipients of the other awards and there will be compiled a list of possible ways to help which we can share with each other.
The EETN volunteers and listeners wish to sincerely thank the members of Banstead Rotary Club for their generosity and hospitality. We look forward to keeping in touch with them to report on the progress of our IT renewal project.
On Thursday 7th February representatives of Toyota GB came to our studio to present a cheque for £1,550 to the Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper. The grant was made from the Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow and will be used to buy new equipment to replace our present computers which are now very old.
Hannah Davies, CSR Specialist, and John Ryan, Volunteer Co-ordinator, met volunteers and presented the cheque to talking Newspaper Chairman Judy Sarssam.
We are extremely grateful to Toyota for their generosity and look forward to keeping in touch with them to report on the progress of our IT renewal project.
