Working with GlobalGiving we received a financial bonus from the Little by Little campaign, and together with our fundraising partners outside GlobalGiving, we have reached our target to purchase a sensory trolley for Southend University Hospital.
The Rhino Sensory Trolley costs £3,060 and our campaign to purchase one, specifically for the radiology department of Southend University Hospital, began in February 2020. You all know what happened next. With the pandemic locking down communities fundraising all but ground to a halt. None the less, local Rotary clubs together raised over 2,000 Pounds leaving just 710 Pounds to go. With clubs’ coffers empty we asked generous supporters to donate to the campaign during GlobalGiving’s Little by Little campaign which guaranteed a matching grant of 50% on small donations, plus they also apply for Gift Aid on our behalf. Together with donations made during this period outside of the Little by Little campaign we have now reached our target.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone but your generosity means that for the sick children of South Essex life is a little bit better. Thank you.

Fundraising is just one of the many aspects to Rotary, it is a global organisation that fosters both friendship and community support.
