The Rotary Club of Rugby Saturday Breakfast recently donated £300 to Futures Unlocked.
This local charity supports ex-offenders in Warwickshire through mentoring, advice and various programmes. As a result, their clients are almost half as likely to re-offend within 12 months of release compared to the national average.
Rotarians presented a cheque to Jackie Oglethorpe, Chair of Directors and Trustees of the charity at Moriarty’s - the organisation’s café and art gallery in Regent Street. Jackie said ‘We are grateful to Rotary for this donation which will help us continue to help the men and women who use our support to transform their lives’.
The donation was made possible by money raised at the Rotary Spring Fair held earlier this year.
Futures Unlocked supports ex-offenders to lead crime-free lives resulting in a reduction in reoffending and the building of safer communities across Warwickshire. They provide a ‘through-the-gate’ mentoring support service carried out by a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers. They also run a number of other projects including a Family Support Project.
