Rotarians Lend A Hand To Women's Refuge
9:34am 15th October 2013
Members of Rotary clubs in Weymouth and Dorchester have been helping improve the lives of women and children at the Women's Refuge Hamlet.
They've been lending their decoration and DIY skills to help spruce up the facility.
The materials were donated by the Dorchester branch of Bradfords Building Supplies.
James Hitt of Bradfords said, "Dorchester Bradfords are really pleased to be able to help this very worthwhile project, it fits well with our community links and helps vulnerable people." The Area Sales Manager, Ed Finch, was equally pleased, "It's good to be part of such a community initiative," he said.
District Councilor, Molly Rennie who is the Hamlet's champion said, "I am so pleased and grateful. I can't tell you what it means to me and the women and their children to not only see their new home looking so smart but also to know they have the support of Rotary members".
After the days work Diana Apps, Casterbridge President thanked the team saying; "Having the four clubs working together in our community for people who both need and are grateful for our help is exactly what Rotary is all about."
The last word should probably go to one of the residents of the Hamlet who said, "I just can't believe you would all give up your day and do that for us - thank you so very much!"
