Welcome to the website of Chelmsford Mildmay Rotary Club
Chelmsford Mildmay Rotary Club was founded in 1972 and has been active in the Chelmsford area ever since. We have 22 members, both men and women, all of whom wish to give service to the community and to meet socially as friends.
We meet for lunch every Tuesday at the Marconi Club in Beehive Lane, Chelmsford, for a programme of talks, presentations and discussions. This helps keep us aware of ways in which we might be of use, and we raise funds to support various local, national and international causes.

Computers for schools in Tanzania
Since 2010 we have been involved in a project to send recycled computers from Essex schools and businesses to Tanzania, Africa. Following the successful shipment of our first three containers, each with 200 computers, printers and other equipment, we are near completion of the fourth and final shipment and will not therefore be seeking further donations of computer equipment. Very many thanks to everyone who has donated. More details here
