About us

Exmouth Raleigh Rotary

Here's an introduction ... scroll further down for our latest news.

Exmouth Raleigh Rotary is a small group of about 25 members, both men and women. We normally meet on a Monday evening for a meal, for companionship and to plan future activities.  We always have a full programme of charitable and social events that take place throughout the year. We support local, national and international charities with emphasis on those in our area. We also support the global Rotary charity, the Rotary Foundation, which has been successful for many years with such initiatives as the "End Polio Now" programme. We are always ready to respond quickly to emergencies and natural disasters anywhere in the world. This response often takes the form of the funding of one or more Shelterboxes to provide much needed help to those directly affected. You will often see us on the streets of Exmouth doing our bit to improve the lives of people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Whilst doing charitable work is both rewarding and commendable, companionship and fun are also important aspects of Rotary, so we usually have a dinner together on club evenings and hold a wide variety of social events for our members and their partners. In brief our members have great fun while supporting a huge range of charities and worthwhile causes.

Our President for 2019/20

Our President for the Rotary year 2019/20 is Adrian Hewitt ...

  ... and Adrian's chosen good cause is the Avocet Learning Trust, and in particular to support an initaitive to develop a facility at Marpool Primary School - the Avocet Trust Learning Centre - for the teaching of children unable to cope within normal mainstream education.

We host a popular Quiz Evening twice a year (October and April) at Withycombe Rugby Club. The latest event was on 21st October when the talented "D-JAM" team triumphed. The picture below shows them collecting their prizes.

Our popular "Ready Teddy Jump" event that was held in May raised much-needed funds for the Bramble Ward Children's Unit at RD&E Hospital, a well-loved, high-performing acute care facility used, not only by local families, but also the wider Devon community. The unit’s healthcare costs are met by central Government but the additional charitable donations they receive make a huge difference to the experience children and their parents have while they are there. They are currently redesigning the Paediatric Outpatient Department to create a calm and welcoming environment for the patients and their families whilst attending their consultant-led appointment. More information about the Bramble Ward can be found by cllicking here.

LATEST NEWS ... we will be holding another "Ready Teddy Jump" event in Exmouth on Saturday 13th June 2020.

The picture below shows Raleigh President Adrian presenting a cheque for £1,500 to Debbie Allen from the Bramble Unit along with Raleigh Rotarian John from the organising committee who brought along one of the brave parachuting teddies!


This was just one of the contributions we have made to the local community, and beyond, in recent months. It is so rewarding when we can meet up with representatives of the charities to present them with cheques. Here are a few recent examples (click on the picture captions for more information):

 British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Stillbirth and Neonatal Death (SANDS)

 BHF, Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) and Novi Survat 

 Devon Air Ambulance Trust

 Pete's Dragons

Our twin club

We have a long relationship with our twin club in Knysna, South Africa. An ex-member of Raleigh moved to South Africa and joined this club and a group of our members visited them a few years ago.
