Company name, website and social media handles:
- Derby Daybreak Rotary Club
Overview of what your company/organisation does:
Part of Rotary International – a humanitarian service organisation, We are part of a worldwide network of people who believe in giving back to our community. Our causes are; promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, and saving mothers and children.
Why have you supported Safe and Sound as an anniversary year sponsor?
Our founding President Sheila Taylor was also the person who helped raise awareness of child exploitation and ultimately the forming of Safe and Sound. We have supported the charity from its very beginnings and this seemed a perfect fit.
Are you planning any special fundraising or awareness-raising events as part of your support?
We had a charity quiz on 27th May 2022 at Belper Town Football Club which Safe and Sound competed at. We are collecting toiletries for Safe and Sound during the month of June.
Have you appointed a Safe and Sound Champion within your company: name, title and a key message from them about what they hope to achieve as your Safe and Sound champion?
We don’t have a specifically named champion as we’re only a small club of 12 members but we hope that supporting Safe and Sound on your anniversary year will bring attention to both our organisations and possibly lead to new members who also believe passionately in helping their community.
What would your message be to the young people and families that Safe and Sound supports?
Rotary in Derby will always support this most vital charity in whatever way we can. Our aims are your aims and together we can support the lives of vulnerable children in our community.
