Where we donated our money in 2016 to 2017

The Rotary Club of Towcester raises money from a variety of sources and events which it then spends on various charitable causes in the following year. It is the policy of the Club to make that expenditure public. The Rotary Year runs from the 1st July in one year to the last day of June in the next year. In addition to the items belwo, the Club also spent monies on organising the many Youth Competitions and Young Carers events throughout the year.
