Issue 308 – Walk raised over £7,000 for Sightsavers

The Frome Selwood Rotary team ‘The Freewheelers’, sponsored by Wheelers Electrical Contractors of Westbury, completed the 3 peaks mountain challenge in June this year.

All funds have now been collected, and Russell Richards from Sightsavers International attended a meeting of Frome Selwood Rotary Club on Tuesday, 17th August. He confirmed that the total amount raised was over £7,000 including gift aid, and he thanked the team members.
Claire Hewish, the leader of the 3 peaks challenge team, gave a presentation to rotary club members and guests, and explained the trials and tribulations involved in training, walking and fund raising for such a challenging event.
Claire was thanked by Russell Richards from Sightsavers and by president Jenny Bennett of Frome Selwood Rotary Club. Claire Hewish was then presented with a Paul Harris Award from Frome Selwood Rotary Club in appreciation of all the work she has done in raising the money and completing the 3 peaks challenge.
