Rotary Club of Middleton

‘Dragon’s Den’ launches for 2017

The Rotary Club of Middleton is set to hand out the proceeds from its annual fundraising to local community groups who apply to their Dragon's Den initiative and is urging Middleton community groups and organisations to get in touch and apply for cash for their projects.

The Rotary Club of Middleton raises around £10,000 a year through its various activities including, Christmas street collections with Father Christmas and his sleigh and other fund gathering initiatives.

Much of the cash is distributed within the local community, to charities, groups and individuals seeking financial support for a broad range of causes.

Lee Wolf, Dragon's Den, Project Leader said: “The route to securing the support of the Rotary Club of Middleton starts with the completion of a short, simple application form which should to be submitted by 31 August 2017.

“The shortlisted bidders will be invited to make a brief presentation to members during September and October.

“Cheques will be presented to successful applicants in January 2018 at their activity centre providing a photo opportunity and some well-deserved publicity.

“For an application form you email us at
