IN THE week before Easter, the Rotary Club of Langley Park built a new brick barbecue for the use of the students at Nash College, part of Livability, in Croydon Road, Hayes.

The Club wanted to do something practical as part of its charitable efforts this year and not just give financial donations.

Members also wanted to recognise the work done by the staff at Nash.

At its last Council meeting the Club also approved the latest tranche of donations.

These included £500 to the Whitechapel Mission, another £450 to President David Masters’ chosen charity, Bromley Mencap, £250 to Magpie Dance, £450 to Deaf Access and £490 to Shelter Box, the Rotary charity which helps survivors of natural disasters around the world.

The Club is preparing for a Camel Race Night on April 25 and is working with St Christopher’s Hospice to help again with its Fun walk on May 31.

It will also be helping again with the Harris Hospice Care walk on May 10.

The Club meets on Monday Evenings at the David Lloyd, Beckenham, in Stanhope Grove.
