What We Do
We pride ourselves like all other Rotary clubs with our work for the community - be it the local community on our doorstep or the international community. Rotary is not just about raising funds for worthy causes but we are "People of Action" - we get out into our communities and do things that make a difference.
One such example of our community engagement is of course our annual Christmas collections. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details of this years rounds'.
At Plympton Rotary we are also proud of the support we give the young members of our community. We run many competitions to enable youngsters to showcase their talents and we also make presentations to reognise these achievements.
During the 2017/18 Rotary year we proudly sponsored Rachel Miller from the Plymouth Albion Ladies Rugby Team. Our sponsorship helped cover the costs of her kit, registration fees and player insurance - in return, her pre and post game kit displayed our logo, giving us a great deal of advertising at their games and Rachel also helped our club at a number of events throughout the year.
We were pleased to hear that her fellow players at Albion recognised her efforts behind the scenes in keeping things going as well as promotion of the club and community engagement - primarily through events such as ours - and awarded her the players "Club Woman of the Year" for the 2017/18 season.
In Rotary we work hard but also play hard. We have many great and fun social events throughout the year - ranging from quiz nights, skittles and such like and we also have many informative and interesting speakers who visit our club meetings.
