THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE CAUSES THAT EXE VALLEY ROTARY HAS SUPPORTED IN RECENT YEARS:
"Little acts of kindness and generosity make a huge difference in an individual’s life, but join up all that kindness and generosity and you can change the lives of whole communities, whole nations and even a whole continent". (Debbie - on receiving Global Rotary Award on behalf of Mercy Ships - July, 2020)
