Chessington World of Adventure

Guildford Rotary Club were pleased to be able to support Rotary KidsOut Day 2019 by sponsoring 5 children with 5 carers, from Cherry Trees Respite Care Home, to go to Chessington World of Adventures in June 2019.

Although physically dampened a little by the weather, it did not dampen their spirits.

The children all had a great day out, taking part in a number of the rides, seeing some of the animals and enjoying an indoor "picnic" lunch.

RHS Wisley opened its doors once again this 1/2 term week Feb 2019 to Guildford Rotary Clubs to collect for the fight against polio.

Over the 3 days the 3 Guildford Clubs raised £1,297






 Purple Pinkie

On Friday,Saturday 22-23 February the RHS Wisley very kindly allows the Rotary Clubs of Guildford to hold a 'Purple Pinkie' weekend at Wisley Gardens. Over the 3 days £1,297 pounds was donated

For voluntary donations  'Purple 4 Polio' wristbands are handed out and children can, if they wished, have a "Purple Pinkie" to simulate the finger markers given to children taking part in the Polio vaccination programme promoted and funded by Rotary International. 

"Purple Pinkie" is a campaign by Rotary to raise money to End Polio Now – one of the world’s biggest ever immunisation programmes.

In its first year it was a tremendous success capturing the imagination of the public and to build on that success, "Purple Pinkie" is coming up with many more innovative ideas - full of fun - with something for all ages.
Polio has no cure. It is a crippling and potentially fatal disease and children under the age of five are at greatest risk. However Polio is easy to prevent by vaccination that costs just 50p. When a child is vaccinated, they have a purple stamp put on their little finger – giving them a "Purple Pinkie."

In 1985 Guildford Rotary Member, Dr Clive Addis-Jones, helped to set up the Rotary Jaipur Limb Project, and was the Founder Chairman when it became a registered charity in 1993.

The Rotary Jaipur Limb project is a pro-active fund-raising and project-initiating body of Rotarians, drawn from all over RIBI (the Rotary International region covering Britain and Ireland). It was formed in 1985 and became a registered charity in 1995.

There are 9 trustees, assisted by several co-opted managers, who divide their time between raising awareness of the project among Rotarians in RIBI, identifying appropriate sites for projects, principally in India and Africa, and assisting in the preparation of programmes, budgets and financing for those projects.

In recognition of his long standing involvement in the Charity, which includes two periods as Chairman, the Trustees and Management Committee have invited Clive to be a Patron of the Society having  �..been at the forefront of being able to see the concept flourish....and push the frontiers to a level never envisaged in the early years �

The Rotary Club of Guildford feels privileged to count Clive among its membership and warmly congratulates him on the honour bestowed upon him.
