ROTARY club members ‘putt’ in plenty of effort to help fund new facilities for a hospice.

A charity competition was organised at Matlock Golf Club by the town’s Rotary, and the £3,300 raised was handed to Rainbows Children’s Hospice.

The 14-bedroom charity centre in Loughborough provides specialist to children and young people with life-limiting illnesses, and facilities include a hydrotherapy pool, a state-of-the-art multi-sensory room and a family support lounge, all aiding the support of a team of dedicated doctors and staff.

Rotary president, Eric McCarrison, presented the money to the hospice’s community and events manager Katie Baxter, during a recent visit.

He said “We should all be proud of the contribution that Matlock Rotary has made towards this major project.

“The difficulties faced by parents whose children are affected by life limiting illnesses are felt throughout the family and Rainbows are there to support them throughout.”
