The 2021 Christmas and New Year Fundraising Appeal supports Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and the Afghan Crisis Appeal.
Since 1970 Cranleigh Rotary has supported many local, national and international Charities through various activities and events.
An annual event is the Christmas and New Year Fundraising Appeal, which for 2021 will be a street collection carried out by club members in Cranleigh on the 17th and 18th December.
In addition, donations can be made through Just Giving until mid-January 2022.
For 2021/2022, the charities to benefit from the appeal will be local and international Charity – The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and the Afghan Crisis Appeal following a year that for both charities and different reasons can only be described as VERY CHALLENGING.
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care provides supportive and end of life care to adult patients and their families living with an advanced or terminal illness in West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.
Every day the service supports nearly 300 patients, carers and relatives at the Hospice, out in the community or the patients’ own homes.
The Afghan Crisis Appeal is funding the work of Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Afghanistan.
MSF is delivering life-saving medical care to people caught in the Afghanistan crisis. MSF is currently running five projects, including hospitals, in some of the largest cities to provide both emergency and routine medical care.
Medical teams act fast to save peoples lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics. MSF go where they are needed most.
For both these charities to continue with their work, your support is needed more than ever before.
You can support the charities on the 17th and 18th December when members from Cranleigh Rotary will be collecting in Cranleigh outside the Co-Op, M&S Food Store and Sainsbury’s.
