On 17th June the Rugby Dunsmore Rotary Club became the first major community supporters of the Friends Diamond Jubilee Appeal presenting an initial cheque for £2,000 and said that this is only the beginning of their support.

Mike Hutton, the President of Rugby Dunsmore Rotary Club for 2013-14, said that he selected The Friends as his Charity of the Year because “St Cross is a valued essential part of Rugby town and really merits the support of all the citizens and the Rotarians”.  Following on from the Spring Fayre, members of the club have held a Golf Day in aid of the charity and the community were invited to run in aid of The Friends in the Run for Rotary event at Draycote on the 28th of September 2014.
