TWENTY charities gathered at Evesham Rowing Club to celebrate another successful year in the history of the Rotary Club’s Tree of Life appeal.

The event offers an opportunity for the charities - all beneficiaries of the Tree of Life - to meet and chat with one another, as well as giving Rotary Club members the chance to see the work that the charities are engaged in.

Charity representatives were able to give insights into the work they’ve undertaken, and to express the importance of receiving continuing support, with short presentations from Diane Bennett of ‘Caring Hands in the Vale’, Rob Nichols of ‘First Responders’ and Gilly Russell, president of De Montford Schools’ ‘Interact Club’.
