Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Guildford District
We are a group of men and women of all ages and experiences from Guildford and its surrounding area who, together, use our time, talents and knowledge to try to help Guildford and the wider world be a better place.
We raise funds, make friends and try, through our efforts, to help those less fortunate whilst having fun and enjoying each other's company
Rotary is all about Communities. These are local, national and international. Wherever there is a need Rotary is there, whether it is a disaster such as a Tsunami or an awful storm in the Philippines, or an earthquake in Nepal,Rotary will be there in some form to help.
Locally we help a large number of Charities and individuals who are in great need. How is this all achieved? Quite often we fundraise.The idea that Rotary is all about collecting in the High Street or outside a supermarket is however far from the truth. We do do this but it is a very small part of our fundraising efforts.
The following are some of the things that we are currently doing:-
ANNUAL CHARITY WALK
For 27 consecutive years we have run a Charity Walk from Shalford Park where the walkers raise money for their favourite charity at no cost to them.
This years walk took place on Sunday 19th May and full details and photos can be found by clicking on "Annual Charity Walk" on the "What we do" menu .Next year's walk is already being planned for Sunday 17th May 2020. If you have not taken part before, you support a charity, can get sponsorship and want to raise money without any cost to you or your charity then please get in touch at :- email@example.com
Please also follow us on Twitter@ShalfordWalk
The 1960’s and 70’s were a great time for pop music. Many of us well remember bands like the Beatles, Abba, Rolling Stones and some will even admit to the Sex Pistols!
Well on 10th January next year you will have a chance to strut your stuff to that music again.
Come to Clandon Regis Golf Club for a nostalgic evening.
The Rotary Club have organised a live band, a buffet plus an auction
to raise money for local charities.
Bring your friends it will be a great evening.
If you feel inclined we would be delighted to see you dressed in the style of the era
Fish & Chip Supper & Quiz
The club has an evening of fun and fellowship annually in September/October when we hold a Fish and Chip evening for club members and their guests. As well as the food there is a competion in the form of a pictorial quiz, and last year the evening, including a raffle, raised over six hundred pounds towards buying a laptop for Challengers following their disastrous fire at their Guildford headquarters.
We had agreed that this year the event would be on Friday 12th October but due to the sad passing of the main organiser, Chris Parker, this was cancelled but was brought back as the Rotary Club Christmas Party in December with some excellent entertainment provided by the U3A Ukulele Band.
From this event the club was pleased to donate £350 to the band's chosen charity, Shooting Star Chase.
We will be organising another quiz night this year. Please watch this website for the details to be announced.
Annual Concert by Local Schools
This year's 7th Annual Schools Concert, generously sponsored by Downs Solicitors, was held on Wednesday 13th March 2019 at Glive and was again a huge success.
Please click on "Details" on the featured page above or on "Schools Charity Concert" on the "What We Do" drop down menu for a full report and pictures of this great evening.
Next year's event is already being planned and is scheduled for Wednesday 11th March. More House School will be replaced for this year by Christ's College. Please put the date in your diary. You will not want to miss this display of exceptional musical talent.
