About us

Welcome to the Witham Rotary Club Home Page

For over sixty years the Rotary Club of Witham has been supporting local, national and international charities.

Recently the Club has supported the Boys BrigadeBrainwave, Essex Air Ambulance, St John Ambulance, Home StartShelter Box and the International Red Cross as well as several other local charities.  Also, every junior school pupil receives a dictionary in year 5.  Members from the Club also help with reading classes at several of Witham's schools.

Chipping Hill Dictionaries 2016

Here is a picture of pupils at Chipping Hill School , October 2016, showing off their  dictionaries.

Funds are raised in many ways.  People in Witham know about Santa and his sleigh and its tour round the town just before Christmas collecting for the charities the Club supports.  There is also the duck race, seen at the start,  below, in Bridge Street, on Carnival Day.

So funds come from events like steet collections, sponsored walks, hot chestnut sales and so on.  Keep an eye on the Charity Window in Richards Funeral Services in Newland Street for the latest details on all Witham's charities.

Below is a picture from earlier this year of a cheque for Home Start, Witham, being handed to staff
at their Atlantic Square office
