Volunteering at Camp Mohawk
Locked down but the Rotary Club of Reading Maiden Erlegh and its Inner Wheel are still very active and working together to help the community.
After a full health and safety and Covid briefing from the Camp Mohawk manager Matt, a team of volunteers spent a whole day clearing the grounds at Camp Mohawk.
The Wargrave-based centre is a multi-functional day centre for children with special needs and their families, set in five acres of beautiful countryside.
Throughout the year the centre provides a range of activities, facilities and natural space to encourage children with a variety of special needs to play, socialise and learn in a secure and caring environment.
Equipped with leaf blowers,rakes and loads of enthusiasm we tackled the mass of leaves covering the playgrounds and open spaces.
We also planted 1,000 crocus bulbs to mark the achievements of Rotary’s worldwide progress to eradicate polio.
Matt was delighted with our efforts and said “Thank you all so much once again for all of your hard work to help to keep Camp Mohawk safe, smart and welcoming – a really incredibly productive day.
You are all always very welcome at Camp, and I hope to see you all again in the future.”
Both clubs are delighted to welcome new members of all ages who enjoy friendship, fundraising and helping the local community.
