Welcome to the Rotary Club of Wickford
Rotary in Wickford!
This is an exciting time of year for us at the Rotary Club of Wickford; in the last few weeks we have welcome four Friends of Rotary to the Club, and in late January we hosted our inaugural Young Writers competition! Some fanatastic stories from the students at Bromfords School in Wickford, just to show what creative talent there is in the young people of our town. Well done to all. Check out the report on the event, including all of the stories
And, not to forget, just to say "Thank you" to you, the residents of Wickford for your support up to last Christmas!!
We're pleased to say that thanks to your generosity this Christmastime we have raised in excess of £5,500, through the street collections in the evenings, the collections at the local supermarlets and the Christmas Tree in the Willows!
Our chosen charity for donations from this Christmas is the Essex Air Ambulance, so thank you for supporting such a worthy cause.
We're very proud of the Christmas tree this year in it's new location in the Willows Centre; drop in and have a quick look. And have a look at the montage of photos we have collected over the last few weeks, out and about.
If you would like to know about all the things we do and what we have done for charity in the last year have a look at our Trustee's Report which outlines what money we've raised and where it's gone.
Sadly we recently lost John Bolton, one of our longest standing members. He will be sadly missed by Rotarians and friends alike. Read the full obituary
