Charity Big Brunch 2013 .
We did it again on April 28th Hayle Day Care Centre . This year the Charity we are supporting is ‘Marie Curie Cancer Care ‘ This is in recognition of the support they gave our past Member Rtn Edwin Wilkinson in his final hours .
Polio Plus 2013
Bulbs Planted in 2011 still there in 2013
A very good display for 2013 but only flowered for a couple of weeks !!
In 2013 we anticipate them coming up again, a yearly reminder to all of the Rotary Polio Campaign which is still doing good works. Recent BBC Dimbleby Lecture heard Bill Gates tell the nation the tale of the Eradication of Polio across the world and he gave an update on the current situation . He mentioned the great work that Rotarian’s across the world had done to get the campaign to the position it is today . The volunteers who had made the ultimate sacrifice in attempt to give children the chance to live Polio Free . Polio is only a flight away from many countries and the need to make the final push continues . The failure to complete the mission would be a tragic situation for all man kind.
Youth Speaks 2013
Hayle Rotary Club held their round of the Rotary Youth Speaks Competition in January 2013 courtesy of the Hayle Day Care Centre.
We had the pleasure of four teams from Penpol School who all performed with a level that the judges felt it was very hard to decide on a winner . The Team that has gone through to the Area round at Penzance on the 28th February was the team of boys who gave an excellent presentation . The speaker told the audience why he was ‘Inspired by Churchill’ . The Club would like to thank the School for the effort they made this year to partake in this yearly contest and we wish the team of boys the very best in the next competition .
Area Finals Penpol did well and went onto District Finals at District Conference when their Speaker Tom was selected as the best Speaker . Coming third overall behind St Merryn 1st and Nancledra 2nd .

Funds for St Julia’s Hospice 2013
The Rotary Club of Hayle held in the later part of 2012 another Charity meal . This time we held it at the Old Quay House Hayle Causeway with the kind consent of the landlord and his wife Mr and Mrs Richards .
The event coinsided with Rtn George Stones Birthday and we had over 100 hundred people present .
The event was run to raise funds to provide a medical syringe driver for the Hospice in Hayle . These drivers are expensive coming in at a £1000 a time . The night raised enough for one driver with a little left over . The Club decided that we would apply for a local Rotary District grant of £500 and the club would put in the remainder from it charity fund to provide two drivers .
This was presented to the Hospice’s Sister Sam Pleasance by the Club President John Lloyd, Vice President David Jones, Rtn David Raymer and Rtn George Stone.
The Nursing staff show Rotarians what the drivers are like . Sister Pleasance stated that they had in the region of 20 drivers for the use of the patients . It was a vital piece of equipment and the extra two from Hayle Rotary would make a great difference to the provision of care at the Hospice .
Supporting the Youth of Hayle 2013
Hayle Rotary have supported three local teams recently by giving each team a cheque for £250 . The three recipients attending Club night on the 4th February and each gave us a run down of their Clubs activities and how they would be spending the generous donation .
Mathew Trewhella, Chairman of Hayle Rugby club Mini’s informed the club that the money would be going towards training equipment such as tackle pads . The youngsters paid a membership fee each year and this helped towards the on costs but without the total support of parents who come to training sessions and games the mini’s would have difficulty . At match days over a 100 people can be at the ground players parents and supporters .
Jeremy Josling, President of Hayle Judo Kwai. The club had been running for 50 years . He explained the ethos of the club and that they had some 70 members as young as five . The generous gift will be used towards the heating of their present home . They have been kindly given the use of an industrial building at Rospeath Crowlas . This is a barn of a place and there is a desperate need for a space heater so that when the club members arrive it can be warmer . This makes it safe for each one to participate . Some of the money will go towards paying for three individuals to attend a special training day in St Ives this summer when they will have the expertise of a japanese exponent of the art. He thanked the Club for the generous donation. It will be put to good use .
Three Rotarians attended the Judo Club recently to see how the money the Club had given to earlier in the year had been spent .
Rtn Trevor Osborne is taken down a peg or two !!!!
Gary Job, Hayle AFC youth Chairman . The Football club youth section needed new goal nets and this would be where the donation would be spent along with supporting training courses for coaches . The aim is to get all coaches up to F A level 1 which includes subjects of first aid and child protection . He was looking to have greater social interaction with the community and provide facilities for the youth in the town . Hayle club was a chattered Standard club and they were in the process of reaching the FA community standard pinnacle award . He thanked the Rotarians for there efforts in the community and especially the very kind donations which again will be used for the benefit of the youngsters .
Calloose BBQ’s 2013
A series of BBQ’s were held by the Club at Calloose Caravan and Camping Park. These annual fund-raising events are looked forward to by Rotarian’s and visitors alike. . Now in its 27 th year, the fun feasts have never been called off, despite flash floods, heat waves and dodgy chefs! Many thanks to the site owners, who have enabled Hayle Rotary to raise many thousands of pounds for charity.
August 22nd 2013 was the last event for the year . A very succesful evening with a good raffle and a very good number of sales of food ,
We look forward to future years being able to provide quality BBQ’s at the site .

This annual event will take place again on the 13th April 2013 at The Coop Car Park Hayle between 11am and 1.00pm approx .
We look forward to another year of providing a service to the community of Hayle .
This vital link with the Stroke Association has proved valuable over the 10 years that RIBI have been involved with KYBP day .
Saturday 13th April was very wet and the turn out of Rotarains was excellent . The Nurses attended and we awaited for the rush !! Due to the very poor weather and the fact that very few people haad ventured out to the supermarket we only had a steady trickle of punters . 27 in all .
We made the effort and promoted Rotary the Stroke Association and in Turn the Hayle Day Centre who kindly allowed us to use their mini bus for the mobile clinic .
Shelter box activities are still taking place, with ongoing fund-raising and shared promotional opportunities. Members continue to donate time and effort to the packing process, ensuring that Shelter boxes reach those most in need.
