In Thouars, the Rotary club organizes various operations to raise funds which are then redistributed to associations and organizations working to improve the lot of suffering people. We were able to have some examples of this on Tuesday May 21, 2024. That day, in their premises, they had invited different managers of structures benefiting from their generosity.

The last lottery organized raised a thousand euros which were offered to Polio Plus, an organization which operates throughout the world. As for the cabaret evening, an ambitious operation set up this year, it made it possible to finance several donations. €500 was donated to the Leukémie Espoir 49 association, an organization which aims to improve the fate of patients, make life easier for the families concerned, and help finance medical research in this area.

The Thouars Fire Brigade Association also received €500 intended for training young people. The Gustave Roussy Institute, which works in the fight against cancer, was also given €500. Finally, the Medical-Psychological Unit for Children and Adolescents (UMPEA) at the Nord-Deux-Sèvres hospital center received €3,000.

The 21 members of the Rotary club of Thouars intend not to stop there. At the beginning of June, they will organize their traditional road safety operation with CM2 students from Thouarsais. And they intend to raise money again by setting up other actions, such as an oenological evening.
