Pool Party raises funds for D.A.R.E.

Over £1,000 was raised in aid of D.A.R.E. ( Drug Abuse Resistance Education) by the Rotary Club of Ravenshead and Blidworth at a Pool Party organised at their home by Drs Raj and Qudsia Chandran.

Through the D.A.R.E programme, every year, over 7,000 Nottinghamshire school children are taught the competencies and skills they need to live safe, healthy and productive lives in a world where drugs are commonplace.

Pictured are Dr Raj Chandran who organised the event, Ravenshead and Blidworth President Mike Lee and Richard Goad of D.A.R.E.
