Micro-Financing

Like many other clubs the Rotary Club of Southwold and District has decided to support the Lend With Care initiative. This involves helping entrepreneurs in the developing world to support themselves by providing micro-loans for their businesses. The club has initially helped three entrepreneurs:

President’s Charity

This year our President’s chosen charity is “Pancreatic Cancer Action”

http://pancreaticcanceraction.org/

He has chosen the charity in memory of Wendy Butler, a friend and former colleague, who sadly died from the disease in February 2012 aged only 56.

Look out for events coming up supporting this worthwhile charity.
