Helping Compton Care

There aren’t many people in Wolverhampton who haven’t been touched by the wonderful work of Compton Care.

For over 40 years they have been providing specialist palliative and end of life care to patients, and support for their families, helping them to navigate every aspect of life with a life limiting condition.

Rotary has been involved with the work of Compton Care since its earliest days and helped to fund the initial fit out of the Hall for use as a care facility for patients with terminal illnesses.

Government funding alone won’t cover the ongoing cost of providing its services to patients free of charge and as a result the organisation continues to rely on donations from the community.

Thanks to your support of our Christmas collections we’ve been able to make a donation to help Compton Care with these costs so that it can continue to offer an outstanding level of service to both patients and visitors.

Supporting the Mayor of Wolverhampton’s Charitable Fund

Each year the Mayor of Wolverhampton selects a number of local charities to support – providing the chosen charities with practical help as well as raising their profile in the City.

Over the past 10 years, Mayors have raised over £300,000 for various local charities.

This year Mayor Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre has chosen to support:

The Haven – a charity providing a range of services and activities including safe accommodation to support women and children in the City.

Give Us A Break – a small, volunteer-run charity dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of young people with complex disabilities and their families by creating inclusive and memorable experiences for them.

Wings & Paws Animal Rescue – a voluntary animal rescue run by local animal lovers working to ensure any neglected, stray, feral or unloved animal will get the best chance at finding a forever home and a better life.

We’ve made donation to the Mayor’s Charitable Fund to help the work of the volunteers running these local good causes – you can show your own support for the Mayor’s charities by donating to the Fund here

They are encouraging everyone in the City to recognise those young people who have gone the extra mile and whose personal courage, care for others, achievement or contribution to the community should be recognised and celebrated.

Anyone can nominate a young person for the award – just visit and complete the online nomination form.

The awards were devised and are sponsored by the City’s four Rotary Clubs together with main sponsor Collins Aerospace. The awards are supported by the Wolves Foundation, Wolverhampton City Council, the James Beattie Charitable Trust and West Midlands Magazines.
