In May 2020, Rotarian Fraser Dukes passed away. He was a great Rotarian who was much respected and admired; he received many awards for his lifelong devotion to the Rotary ethic of Service Above Self.
His notable achievements included heading up the District 1210 Rotary Foundation campaign for the eradication of polio from the day of its start in 1985 until the day he sadly, as we say in Rotary, ‘passed to higher service.’
An appeal was launched to fund the placing of a commemorative plaque on Rotary Ridge at the National Memorial Arboretum. Such was the respect in which Fraser was held that the appeal reached its target in just 5 days; a substantial excess of money subsequently received has been donated to the Rotary Polio Elimination campaign.
The plaque now stands in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Rotary Ridge.
Dear President Brian,
This week is Thanking Week and Compton Care is celebrating all of our wonderful supporters and everything that they have done over the last 12 months for our patients and their families.
It has been a 12 months like no other and yet, our fantastic supporters have continued to raise funds so that we can deliver extraordinary care to our patients and their families when they need it most.
As over 70% of our income is from voluntary donations, we would not be able to do what we do without your commitment and support. The practical and emotional care that your donations provide directly improves lives. What a wonderful gift to give.
We think you’re amazing and on behalf of everyone at Compton, THANK YOU so much for being there for us.
