The Douglas Rotary Club held a BBQ and Fun Day on Saturday, June 17 to thank carers who use the three charities Crossroads Carers, Decaf, and Mannin Cancers.

The event was held at Douglas Rugby Club from 12pm to 4pm and featured a variety of activities for carers of all ages, including crafts, face painting, sports games, a bouncy castle, and a football dart board. There was also music from DJ Allan Vannin and the Roc Vannin choir, and two owls provided by Tina Jauncey and the Wild Life Park. Food was also provided.

Approximately 250 people attended the event, including carers, their families, and friends. The Rotary Club was pleased with the turnout and the positive feedback they received from attendees.

“We were delighted to be able to host this event and thank carers for their invaluable work,” said the Chair of the Douglas Rotary Club Community Service Committee, Ivan Bratty. “It was a great opportunity for carers to relax and have some fun, and we hope they enjoyed themselves.”

The Rotary Club would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped to make the event possible, as well as the sponsors who contributed. They would also like to thank the three charities for their support. The Rotary Club is a global organization that provides humanitarian service, promotes peace, and encourages high ethical standards.
