We have over 30,000 clubs in more than 200 countries.  With over 50,000 members in the UK alone.

We are getting ready for the Lowestoft Santa Sleigh 2016

Santa Sleigh and his helpers are all voluntary folk, who try and cover as many streets as possible each night. Traffic and weather determine how many streets Santa visits. We are not able to give definite times for the same reason . The local council licence determines the time we are able to be out on the street. #Share

Young Carers Project


The Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point aim to help young carers in Lowestoft . We want to support these amazing young people. Volunteering in our community is extraordinary important to our Rotary Club. The project is underway. Rotarian Ian Davies is the lead on this project and supported by members of the Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point. Follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/LowestoftYoungCarers

The community-based Jamie’s Ministry of Food is a practical & hands- cooking programme that teaches people of all ages how to cook from scratch to improve health. Rotary International are starting to work with Jamie's Charity
.
The Strap line to the project is ‪#‎Keepcookingskillsalive‬ .
This is a Jamie Oliver Initiative and we are also working with The Rotary of Colchester Forum.

For any succesful project it needs dedication, teamwork and 'doers! So if you want to join the team - step forward Rotarians! Start date for project. Tuesday 27th September 2016 3.45pm to 5.15pm. Eight Children will be selected for a session and initially from Pakefield High School. Once the course has been concluded evaluation of the course can then move things forward to the next stage of the project. Contact Rotarian Ian Davies for more information eastpointrotary@gmail.com   


Service above Self

The Rotary motto is ‘Service above Self’ so it is not just about fundraising. There are various local projects in which our members are involved  -  such as Waveney Sailability ,  a sailing group for disabled people, and Kids Day Out for children from Warren School. A very successful project which has been running of a number of years is Dictionaries for Life.  Along with the other Lowestoft Clubs, we provide an illustrated dictionary for every year 3 child in the town, supporting the schools’  drive to improve literacy rates. Many Lowestoft residents probably know us best for our Santa Sleigh’s ride through the streets of Lowestoft to meet the town’s children and to raise money for our good causes.  (These are just a few examples of the good causes that the club supports.) 


Who becomes a Rotarian?

The club is a very active with a good mixture of  men and women  (23 men 9 females ) from a variety of professional and social backgrounds. Many have retired from work or find themselves in a position to put the skills  learned through their professional and working lives to work to the benefit of others. The main thing we look for in members is a commitment to help others as part of a community of like-minded people. Not just hard work!  To become a member  of our Club you need to be a person of good character who has a good reputation in their business or community and is willing to serve the community.  Rotary offers something for everyone. Rotary International is a diverse and flexible group of people who work in a variety of ways to support our communities. 

The Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point   'Friends of Rotary' Scheme is planned to provide an opportunity for people who are not able, or may not wish to, join the Club as a Rotarian at the present time. These people may like to assist the local Community by getting involved in the Club's  activities, and may become a Member in the future.  Friends of Rotary are volunteers supporting the work of Rotarians in the community.


'A Friend of Rotary' will be invited to participate in Club activities  

     1)  invited to  selected meetings of the Club 

     2)  invited to  selected Social activities of the Club  

     3)  invited to assist  in Fund Raising activities and Service Projects organised by the Club for the benefit of  the local Community   
 

Cost of being a Member 

Membership £122 per annum  (2016)    plus a meal £10 and drink when attending meetings

There is no cost to be  'Friend of Rotary' .  Please email if you would like to become a Friend of Rotary
