Our Charities for 2018

This year we are supporting two local charities from the proceeds of the 2018 Rotary Heritage Coast Run / Walk.

Riding for the Disabled at Woodbridge

The first primary charity is Riding for the Disabled at Woodbridge whose horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities. They offer activities such as riding and carriage driving to all age groups and wherever possible, to people with any disability. RDA have been carrying out their life-changing activities for over 25 years relying on voluntary help and donations, or legacies, to be able to deliver their services.

SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire

Our secondary primary charity is SERV (Service by Emergency Response Volunteers) Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, a voluntary organisation, and registered charity, founded in 2010.  The group was set up to serve the NHS throughout the two counties of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. In addition to delivering urgent blood and blood product supplies to hospitals out of hours, and at weekends, in 2012 SERV launched the donor baby milk service. This involves the collection and delivery of donated human breast milk used to support premature babies in the maternity units across Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. SERV also supports other groups in delivering supplies to hospitals nationwide.
