Local Company is Appreciated.

presentationThe Rotary Club of Hexham have recognised local business AYP Financial Planning Limited for their long standing support of the Rotary Foundation which is Rotary's own charity.

certificateThe recognition, believed to be the first in Tynedale and one of less than twelve ever to be awarded in the North East district was marked by Hexham Rotary President Andrew Rigg who said "without AYP's significant commitment to our annual Greeting Card initiative our clubs contribution to the Rotary Foundation would be diminished and we are extremely grateful for their support". 

At a short ceremony held at AYP's office in Tanners Yard Hexham President Andrew presented MD of AYP Kim Alexandra with a Rotary Foundation "Certificate of Appreciation".


Kim said "I was genuinely overwhelmed to receive the award.  For many years now we have quietly done everything we can to support the amazing work of The Rotary Foundation and will continue to do so.  Every year we send the Rotary Christmas cards to our clients.  Our clients look forward to receiving the cards, which capture beautiful images of Hexham and Northumberland taken by so many talented photographers."

Hexham Rotary Foundation Chair Sandy Rutherford added; "this demonstrates how Rotary and local Businesses can work very effectively together where both can benefit but with the ultimate result of people in need around the world also benefitting".

A remarkable 92% of funds raised by the Rotary Foundation is spent on programme awards and operations in six Areas of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, Disease prevention and treatment. Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, Water and Sanitation and economic and community development.
