It’s been a busy few weeks for members of the Rotary Club of the Deepings.
On Monday evening Cecelia Hammond gave an update about the Children of Chernobyl to Rotarians and members of Deepings Interact Club.
Following the talk Interact president Beth Compton presented Mrs Hammong with a cheque for the charity.
Rotarians also spent a day at Market Deeping’s weekly market to encourage people to have their blood pressure taken as part of National Stroke Awareness Day.
A total of 147 people had their blood pressure taken and of those, 28 people were advised to have a routine follow up by their GP in the next month. Two were advised to have an urgent check at their GP.
The club revealed the winners of its annual schools art competition. Baston Primary School pupil Abbey Garthwaite took first prize, Lilian Nieddu of Peakirk cum Glinton Primary took second while third went to Erin Helliwell of William Hildyard.
And the club has this year raised more than £370 on Polio Eradication Day.
The club’s annual 10k charity run will take place at Deepings Rugby Club in Linchfield Road on Sunday, May 18. Enter at by calling 01778 347580.
