The Southwell Races event proved once again to be an enjoyable evening with six of the seven races sponsored for Polio Eradiacation. The crowd seemed larger than last year but, in fact, we sold only half as many tickets due to a club Charter Dinner on the same evening and District Assembly being held on the following morning. However, a useful £4,785, including a 15 minute bucket collection of £300, has been sent to Polio Eradication.

Wollaton Park Rotary Club have organised a golf event for the past six years, with the generous support of participants and sponsorship, and have raised in excess of £32,000 for a wide variety of Charities.
They hope to be able to gain your support this year. The event is on Friday 12th July 2013. You may wish to enter a team. Alternatively there are a number of ways that you could assist. These include company sponsorship or advertising in the brochure or for individuals to donate a prize or cash.
We have been fortunate, again, to secure the services of Wollaton Park Golf Club, one of the most picturesque golf courses in Nottingham. This is set in parkland overlooked by the beautiful 16th century Wollaton Hall. Red and Fallow deer roam freely and are often seen on the course. This presents an ideal venue for a great day’s golf.
Please visit the Club’s website for a flyer and entry/sponsorship application form.

Cerebral palsy affects around one in every 400 births and can be caused from lack of oxygen at birth, damage to the developing foetus, a viral infection, certain drugs or poor nutrition. It is the most common form of severe disability amongst children worldwide. The number of babies born with cerebral palsy is not declining.
Cerebral Palsy Sport is the sports organisation for people with cerebral palsy, providing sporting opportunities to individuals of all ages and at all levels from the recreational right through to paralympic competition.
It is also an advisory agency for disability sport issues and is recognised and respected within the international arena.
Cerebral Palsy Sport’s primary aim is to attract more people to become involved in sporting activities for the pursuit of excellence or for fun and enjoyment. Among the activities covered by CP Sport are athletics, boccia, bowls, football, swimming and table cricket.
