The Rotary Club of London (RCL) is the largest Rotary Club in the capital and is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The International Committee of RCL has joined forces with the Rotary Club of Pampanga Norte (RCPN) to assist a project in Pampanga Province in the Philippines to improve community health and school sanitation. In order to help raise funding for the project, RCL are organising a Philippine International Evening at the Rotary International District 1130 Headquarters, 6 York Gate, Marylebone Road, London NW1 4QG on Saturday 26th May. This particular project was chosen out of several others as being the most likely to succeed due to the presence of the Pampanga Norte Club who will administer the funding.
The British Embassy in Manila and the Philippine Embassy in London have encouraged us to enlist the help of the Co-Chairmen of the Philippine British Business Council to ask if you may be able to assist RCL in its effort to raise funds for this extremely worthwhile project with a financial donation. We realise that you will have existing policies towards charitable giving but we hope that, given your particular interest in the Philippines, and the importance of the project to Pampanga Province, you may be willing to consider this particular event as worthy of support. In return we are more than happy to exhibit corporate logos etc on wall space in the venue.
Click HERE to read a copy of the flyer for this event together with a complete copy of the project itself for your evaluation. I am sure you will agree that it is indeed worthy of support. The Philippine Ambassador, Mr Enrique Manalo, has given his blessing to this event and hopes to be able to attend himself barring another priority taking precedence. Indeed, we hope that you yourself will be able to attend. The RCL and the RCPN do hope that supporters of the Philippines will give this their early and close attention and consider a donation in the region of up to £500.
Donations and ticket applications should be sent to the address in the flyer. Cick on the links below:
