Supporting 17 Local Charities

The whole ethos behind the Saffery Rotary Walk is to raise and distribute money to local charities who do so much for so many in a myriad of ways. Having sifted through the many applications for funding from the 2022 Walk we are delighted to have selected 17 charities as shown below with a brief description of the support we hope to give them. That support is only possible by our walkers and the people who sponsor them so a big advance thank you to walkers and supporters for helping improve the lives of many. We will be sharing more information about each of these charities in the coming weeks.
