About our Club
Burnham Beeches Rotary was chartered in April 1985, and has maintained a membership of between 30 and 40 ever since. Members are drawn principally from Burnham and the Farnhams, and other local villages. We meet each week in a magnificently converted medieval barn situated in a beautiful part of Buckinghamshire.
The Club runs a busy programme of social events, many of which are open to non-members. These events have helped forge a strong sense of fellowship and goodwill between members, as well as with the community at large. The Club's fund-raising activities support local, national and international charitable causes.
The main fund-raising event, held each year in May, is the Burnham Donkey Derby. Over the last few years, the Club has donated more than £250,000 to such causes as Marie Curie Cancer Care, the Thames Valley Hospice and the Thames Valley Adventure Playground, and many others. The Club places great emphasis on youth development, working closely with local schools sponsoring academic competitions, providing careers advice, and general support. Youth sporting development is also encouraged. A 5-a-side football tournament is organised by the Club for the local primary schools each year. Another major event is the Burnham Beeches Run held each autumn in Burnham Beeches.
The Club was project leader on behalf of District 1090, in the construction of a new classroom block for a tsunami ravished school in Sri Lanka. This involved Club members travelling to the site at their own expense. This example has been followed by other Club members who have visited Africa in support the 'Africa Micro-credit' charity, and India in support of Rotary's 'End Polio Now' campaign and support for Africa Vision Malawi
