Clevedon Yeo Rotary make generous Easter donation


Clevedon Yeo Rotary has donated three eggs from a raffle to Children South West Hospice.

The move comes after the group had to cancel its egg raffle at four pubs in Clevedon.

The remaining egg was drawn and the ‘landladies at the Bristol’ were the winners. The draw raised £50.

With help from a district matching grant, the group will also be giving £1,500 to ward D603 at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

The ward cares for patients undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment at Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC). It has not been updated since the 1970s.

Club president, Tony Carrington said: “We have also had to withdraw our Easter egg raffle from four Clevedon pubs as they are shut so we are drawing one prize from the tickets sold before the shutdown and have donated the other three eggs to the hospice to give the kids, and possibly staff, a boost.”
