Transporting Help to Refugees

On Monday, April 4th, a new transport was sent to a refugee camp in Ukraine. This camp takes care of more than 1.200 refugees including children.

In a collaboration with RC Baia Mare, early in the morning, food, hygiene products, and other items were loaded into an 18 tonnes truck by RC Suceava Bucovina to be transported to a refugee camp in Ukraine.

  • The goods were donated by a number of Rotary clubs including The Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton and Eichstätt Germany as part of the ICC Romania-Austria-Germany efforts. At its first stop in Suceava, other products such as 3,150 diapers, 80 sleeping bags, and food were added by RC Suceava Bucovina to reach the full capacity of the truck.

On behalf of refugees, we express our deepest gratitude to all contributors!

Supporting Youth Talent.

The Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton continues to support our many talented young people.
This time the support took the form of the presentation of a trophy in memory of the late Past District Governor Fraser Dukes. The trophy was presented to Lysia Bayley, a pupil at the Wolverhampton Music School, to mark her obtaining the highest marks in an external examination. Lysia gained 130 marks out of a possible 150, leading to a distinction rating in her grade 7 clarinet studies.
The trophy was presented by President Elect Sylvia Morgan, who was accompanied by husband Derek, along with Fraser’s son, Tim, and wife Ann. The head of the Schools Music Service, Ciaran O’donnell is also seen in the picture.

Wolverhampton Ukrainian Community Centre

I was glad to be on hand at the  today as the volunteers loaded a van – provided by Royal Mail – with relief goods for refugees fleeing the war. The van left us to collect a generator – again gifted by Royal Mail – and was then going on to Peterborough where the goods will be loaded, together with donations from across the UK, onto a fleet of large lorries going direct to Western Ukraine.

It was pleasing to be told, several times, that the Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton is held in very high regard by the community for the help we are providing.

District Final of the Young Musician Competition

It is pleasing to be able to record that even while Rotarans are focused on supporting Ukraine and helping the refugees, our other activities continue.
The winner of the District Final of the Young Musician Competition was 17 year old trombonist Sebastain Brailsford, sponsored by the Rotary club of The City of Wolverhampton.
His award was presented by District Governor Robyn Davies after what the adjudicators described as ‘a fautless performance.’
