Rotary club thanks community for donations 

 Published on: 8th March 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Rotary club in Edgeware and Stanmore has thanked the local community for helping the homeless. 

The club started an initiative to collect toiletries for Homeless Action in Barnet. Cartons, the café on Stanmore Broadway, acted as a community collection point and the Grim’s Dyke Hotel donated toiletries to use in Barnet Centre bathroom facilities. 

Senel Tursun, owner of the newly-opened supermarket, Shenel’s, donated fruit and vegetables. Eyal Gold, Flax’s and Peter Bradley, Rotarian, cooked early morning breakfasts – the pancakes went down a treat.

In addition, both Edgware Reform and Hendon Reform synagogues run a night shelter providing the homeless with a safe and warm place to sleep.

The community supported initiative has been a real “eye-opener” – bringing together people of all cultures and creeds – in helping the homeless from all backgrounds. These could have been our own children, family or friends – ending up “on the streets” with nowhere to go.
