Motorists driving into Perth on the Glasgow Road are enjoying a beautiful summer floral display thanks to Perth Kinnoull Rotary Club and Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland East).
The housebuilder donated £150 to help the local group place an additional Rotary International sign at the entrance to its Charlotte Gate residential development and planted Cotswold Gold heathers picking out the Rotary International Wheel.
The Rotary Club already had a floral display made up of 5,000 crocuses, which was planted on the same sit in 2017, as part of its Purple4Polio campaign. For over 30 years, Rotary has been working tirelessly to rid the world of the deadly disease. Over 2.5 billion children have received vaccinations, thanks to the help of Rotary.
George Delgaty of Perth Kinnoull Rotary Club said” Bellway very kindly let us plant a crocus wheel on their development two years ago and we are delighted that they have once again lent us their support. The heathers will have white flowers in late summer and the purple crocuses will again come through next Spring”.
“Hopefully people driving past will see the sign and it will inspire them to learn more about the work we do in the local community- from organizing big events like the Tayside Cycle Challenge Sportive to one-off donations to young sports stars and ongoing support of local and national charities”
Lynn Pringle, Director, Bellway Homes Ltd ( Scotland- East) said: “Rotary Club’s do such a wonderful job in the local community and we didn’t think twice when they asked us. The new sign and flowerbed look absolutely terrific”.
Perth Kinnoull Rotary Club wishes to thank Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland- East) for their support with this project and our photo shows Kirsten Gavin, Sales Manager, Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland east) and local Sales Manager, Janice officially opening the new Sign and Flowerbed on 30th July 2020.
