21 July 2020FORFAR ROTARY SERVICE RECOGNITION AWARD.
FORFAR ROTARY SERVICE RECOGNITION AWARD.
Rotary Membership Convenor Katharine McLean, putting her best foot forward, performed her first duty of the new Rotary Year by handing over a socially distant Service Recognition Award to Tom Dailey of Kennedy Care Group. After receiving a donation of 500 Masks from Forfar Rotary for each of the Forfar based Care Homes he made a generous donation to acquire supplies for other Care Homes in the group but outside the burgh. In keeping with others who have contributed to the project Forfar Rotary were delighted to recognise his donation.
All the donations will continue to be used by Forfar Rotary Club to support local initiatives and projects for the good of the community.
The Kennedy Care Group’s founder Tom Dailey has over 30 years experience in care of the elderly. Much of his knowledge and expertise gained through his work in both public and private sectors. He is actively involved in the day to day operations of the care homes in the group, all of which have experienced management teams in place.
The Kennedy Care Group are continually striving to improve the level of care and standards of accommodation that they offer to their residents. They have care homes throughout Angus, Tayside and Fife and offer a high level of residential care designed around the needs of the individual.
Tom commented “We pride ourselves on the safe, comfortable and friendly environments that we provide for our residents, all backed by expert professional care round the clock”.
23 May 2020Covid 19
A COVER UP PLAN FROM FORFAR ROTARY VERSUS COVID 19
The Rotary Club of Forfar have set up a Covid 19 Fund to help those in need in the Forfar Area. Forfar Rotarian David Valentine has been key to the sourcing of PPE masks for this initiative for the procurement of Face Masks through his contacts in business internationally and we recognise his value in true Rotarian fashion of “Service above Self.”
Working with Voluntary Action Angus (VAA) and Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) Forfar Rotary Club has purchased and will distribute 20,000 PPE face masks for use within the Forfar Area.
Any carer, other person or organisations that require PPE face masks, while carrying out a front line charitable or voluntary service to individuals or groups of people during the Covid 19 crisis, would be welcome to request these from the Club through our Facebook Page, our Website or via our dedicated Telephone Number 07835013095.
Requests can be done from the website www.forfarrotary.org.uk .Click on the Feedback Button, enter your request and details so we can assess your application.
How Can You Help – Due to the current situation, The Rotary Club of Forfar has been unable to run its usual fundraising activities so we have set up a Just Giving page for donations to our Charitable Trust to enable us initially, to supply PPE face masks to safeguard carers and other people on the front line in our local area and to serve our community in other ways during these difficult times for us all. Forfar Rotary has donated thousands of pounds in the community over the years but now we must appeal to the public and business to contribute now that our normal fundraising events have had to be cancelled.
To make a donation use the link for the Rotary website and then on the left hand bottom button "Masks Appeal" click and you are directly into our JustGiving page. OR Simply use the link from our Facebook Page
Information will be updated as we progress with this undertaking by Forfar Rotary by using our Facebook Page as we react to the demand and the availability of various types of Masks.
