Adoption Focus is delighted to have received a donation of £1,250 from The Rotary Club of Edgbaston Convention.

We were invited to attend a dinner with the Rotarians last month at which our CEO, Anna Sharkey spoke about the work that we do in the Birmingham area to secure adoptive placements for children and the support we offer to adoptive parents. Anna’s talk was followed by a question and answer session which allowed Rotarians to found out more about adoption and the work of Adoption Focus.

At the end of the evening Anna and Jo Lee, our Head of Business Development, were presented with a cheque by Edgbaston Rotary’s president, Michael Wedderburn, who also nominated Adoption Focus as his charity of the year.

Anna Sharkey said, “We’re very grateful to The Rotary Club of Edgbaston for their time and generosity and for a very enjoyable evening. Their generous donation will help us to fund the vital services we provide which help our adopters to make a hugely positive difference to the lives of vulnerable children. We’re looking forward to working with them closely over the coming year.”
