Dawnbreakers Rotary Club Seeks Their Next Community Project

Following the successful completion of work to make-over a neglected and unusable plot in Long Eaton, Dawnbreakers Rotary Club are seeking nominations for their next challenge.

Despite being only a small club of 22 members, most of whom have day jobs, the club took a neglected allotment site and converted it into a safe, secure and productive community area with plenty of disabled access.

The project took over 12 months with the work carried out in members’ own time. The club were also supported by Long Eaton Rugby Club and employees of Rolls Royce through the Rotary Business Partnership.

The site was formally handed over in May to The Shared Life Scheme.

If anyone has suggestions for suitable projects for local good causes which Dawnbreakers can consider, they are encouraged to contact the club. The project would have to meet certain criteria:

  • Be in or around Long Eaton
  • Be something which will benefit groups with specific needs or the wider community
  • Be a project which would not be likely to proceed without the club’s help
  • Primarily requires the members’ time and skills albeit the club would be open to raising limited funding if required

If anyone has suitable nominations, please email brief details to Paul Burrows at p.burrows37(at)ntlworld.com. The club will consider all suitable applications meeting the above criteria before selecting a suitable beneficiary.
