The Rotary Club of Dronfield is working very closely with the Rotary Club of Pokhara, Nepal to get immediate aid to those who have lost everything in the recent earthquake. In the last 30 days since the first earthquake we have asked the members of the Pokhara club to utilise £6,200 for urgent humanitarian assistance in the area around Pokhara.

Where is the money going?
- A reception desk was set up in the city hospital. Injured people and their family and carers are supported with food and medicines. Discharged patients were helped back to their villages.
- Thousands of tarpaulins have been bought at bulk rates and distributed
- Food has been bulk-bought and cooked for people without houses
- In Vachhek, Kaski, the club provided 200 tarpaulins for families whose houses were damaged which forced them to stay under open sky.
- The village of Setidovan was devastated. A Rotary convoy took in mattresses, tarpaulins and supplies.
Here in Dronfield we have been fundraising with a street collection raising nearly £200, collecting buckets on the tills at Sainsburys Dronfield raising £450, and a collection at the end of season Sheffield United v Chesterfield game raising over £700. In addtion we have received many personal donations and would encourage everybody to help us support the people of Nepal.

Now in its tenth year the event goes from strength to strength. Last year the 4 day event raised over £36,000 for good causes and this year we hope to improve on that figure.
The majority of people have dreams and ambitions - a 'bucket' list. Many people achive these ambitions but some do not either because their life is limited by physical or mental difficulties or they may have a short life expectancy.
The Rotary Club of Dronfield is looking towards providing assistance to someone in our community to help in achieving their ambition.
