Members from both the Marlow Rotary Club and the Marlow Thames Rotary Club donated over £9,000 to the One Can Trust this year.

The charity, which is based in High Wycombe, relies on donations from the public so that the elderly and vulnerable are able to get food in Buckinghamshire.

However, due to coronavirus, the charity has admitted that they struggling to meet the demand as they are now helping more than 500 families a week.

But both clubs confirmed that a large chunk of the money was sourced from local events such as the town’s Santa Fun Run which took place last December.

Graham Peart, Chair of the One Can Trust, said: “We are delighted to have this level of support from Rotary Club members based in Marlow.

“At the moment we are working flat out, and demand has soared.

“We are receiving so many offers of help – both with food and financial donations – and it is wonderful that the community is responding like this.

The challenges facing many families in South Bucks are unlikely to go away quickly – so this offer of regular support is very welcome indeed.”

Peter Reynolds, President of Marlow Thames Rotary Club added: “Our members are now meeting through weekly Zoom meetings, and of course informal meetings over a meal are indefinitely suspended.

“We had a quick discussion and decided that we could send the meal costs to a good cause rather than just save it, and many members volunteered to do this.

“The One Can Trust probably had the most immediate need – and we were delighted to support this excellent charity."
