£550 donated to the North Oxfordshire Food Bank

£550 donated to Kidlington Food Bank thanks to the generosity of visitors to events in Woodstock on the Night of 1000 candles. We gate crashed the Food Bank volunteers AGM and changed their looks of surprise to one of joy with our cheque.


Kidlington Fire Station staff rescue Father Christmas!

Even Father Christmas needs his sleigh to be maintained each year and it needs a big space to carry out the work. He and his elf’s lost their usual garage this year but Kidlington Fire Station staff came to our rescue offering us a garage to use.


Purple for Polio eradication, bulbs planted in Kidlington.

10,000 purple crocus corms have been planted on the final roundabout on the Bicester Road before you join the A34 at Kidlington.

More than £3000 was given from our 100 club supporters in November to the Good Will and Growth for Africa Charity to pay for electricity to be supplied to the Liverpool Community School in Sierra Leone.


About us

Woodstock and Kidlington Rotary Club are a young member of a worldwide service organisation with many different facets. When the combined talents and energy of Rotary's 1.2 million members are channelled in one direction its impact can be immense. For example, Rotary International set out in 1985 to eradicate polio. Since then Rotarians worldwide have worked with the WHO (World Health Organisation), UNICEF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the world is now close to becoming polio-free. Equally important is the fellowship each Rotarian obtains from regular club meetings, and friendships borne through Rotary are often worldwide and long lasting.


The club has raised over £180,000 for many causes since it formed in 1985(click here for history) It has provided Shelter Boxes for various disasters throughout the world and in 2005-6 helped build and equip a pottery and metal-working workshop in Zambia to teach orphans the skills to make fuel-efficient stoves, a need all too evident in the copper-belt region. Closer to home the club has helped well over 100 local organisations from Action Research to Yarnton Boy's Football Club through its annual fund raising programme which includes the Rotary Blenheim 5 & 10K and the Father Christmas Sleigh. Every year it joins forces with other Rotary Clubs in Oxford to organise Youth Speaks.

We meet at Brothertons, Woodstock, on Monday evenings for a varied programme of speakers (mostly entertaining!), fun and fellowship. We have men and women members from all sorts of backgrounds and our geographical region covers many villages around Kidlington and Woodstock.

The application should be made in writing, by letter or email, and addressed to the RIBI General Secretary, contact details shown below, enclosing two proofs of identification.
