Ensuring that working from home is as regulated as it is in the office. Employees, especially those in the younger age bracket, living in rented accommodation do not have sufficient internal space or access to outdoor space. 

There are stories of people working from laptops on ironing boards. Correct seating, adequate work surface, keyboard technique, posture, position of screen, use of support devices, software setting, non-reflective screens, the environment e.g. lighting and heating levels, importance of regular breaks, setting a routine. When working from home it can be easy to blur the lines between work and home life.

Launched on 6 April 2021, the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) provides financial support to businesses across the UK as they recover and grow following the coronavirus pandemic. You can apply to the scheme if Covid-19 has affected your business. You can use the finance for any legitimate business purpose – including managing cashflow, investment and growth. However, you must be able to afford to take out additional debt finance for these purposes. 

If your business has already borrowed from any of the other coronavirus loan schemes – namely: 

  • Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) 
  • Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) 
  • Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) 

RLS is still open to you, although the amount you have borrowed under an existing scheme may in certain circumstances limit the amount you may borrow under RLS. RLS will run until 31 December 2021, subject to review.

You will be aware of the worsening situation in India as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

Having considered various options to assist in this crisis, an opportunity has been identified at Christian Medical College (CMC), Ludhiana, Punjab. Our contact is a Rotarian with whom the Rotary Club of Hounslow has previously co-operated in a Global Grant Project to purchase equipment for the Burns Unit. We had been in the process of making plans for an eye camp with the same Rotary Club and surgeons based at this hospital, when the pandemic regrettably delayed this. Local contacts all report positively on the Hospital and its attempts to deal with the overwhelming demands placed on it.


The hospital needs ventilators, oxygen concentrators and drugs to assist with Covid cases. Given the immense need, Rotary has identified that limited funds spent on oxygen concentrators and drugs are likely to achieve the maximum benefits. (Ventilators are significantly more expensive, can assist only one patient at any one time and may be surplus to needs once this crisis is over.)


All funds Hounslow Rotary can raise will be sent to an account in Delhi, checked by the Indian Government, and then forwarded to the hospital. If you are able to assist in this humanitarian Project, money may be sent by bank transfer to the Hounslow Rotary Club's Charity account. A Gift Aid form can be provided which can be sent by email for confirmation, to further enhance the help we can provide


The only administration cost will be the small bank charge to transmitting the money to an overseas account . We would therefore like to send the money once only if possible and ASAP. and therefore request that money is received into the Trust Fund account by 12th May.

The Trust Fund account details are as follows:

Name             Rotary Club of Hounslow Trust Fund

Sort Code      60-11-18

Account No    26287722

Reference      Indian pandemic
