Community Projects

               SOX & JOX APPEAL 2024

A beautiful Autumn day on the lawns of Plant 4 at Bowden saw the Regency Park team set up a colourful display promoting the club’s many projects and providing opportunity for people to drop of new socks, jocks and non-perishable food items for those supported through the Service to Youth Council’s, ‘The Foundry’ and The Junction Centre. While there they could learn about Rotary.

Thanks to all who participated.
