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.
