Wimborne Rotary has donated £350 to the Minster Makes Music Appeal, in spite of the fact that during the last 15 months the club has been unable to hold any charitable fund-raising events.
Recognising the importance of the funding, particularly in the context of the proposal to establish a Music Foundation to communicate the musical heritage of the Minster to the congregation and the community, and to develop links with local schools, the club decided to use part of a legacy to fund this donation. The proviso is that the money be used to help defray the costs of instruments and music lessons for disadvantaged youngsters.
Jan Baseley, Wimborne Rotary president, said: “Although the club does hold charitable funds, it has proved difficult to respond to all the requests we receive for help due to our inability to fundraise during the pandemic.
“We did want to support this important appeal and a legacy left to the club by a former member, the late Mike Stead who was a keen musician, enabled us to make this donation in his memory.”
