About us

 

 Regular Projects and Events

RYLA , Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. For many years our club has been delighted to select and fund two awardee places on the RYLA leadership courses. These have been sixth form students from local schools.

The courses are professionally run with the assistance of Rotary staff and a Rotary Mentor for each team and held at Hebden Hey, for the purpose of developing leadership qualities in our young people.  Each year the District accommodates 80 awardees, 40 in each week at the end of July and beginning of August, split into 5 teams of 8.

Our awardees are then invited to our club to give a short presentation about their experiences after which they become true RYLArians. This is always an enjoyable evening.

The district 1040 RYLA course is acknowledged to be the best leadership development course for young people in the . It uses experiential learning through outdoor and indoor activities, with feedback from the staff, mentors and most importantly fellow team members providing an unparalleled environment in which to safely learn and practice leadership skills which develop confidence and will enhance any CV. The awardees rapidly make friends with 40 complete strangers and many have described their RYLA week as the “best week of my life so far”.

     

Each year 6 Schools in the Brighouse area award Rotary prizes to pupils who have contributed to the community.

Each pupil receives a trophy to keep for a year and a gift voucher provided by the club.

The current president has the honor of attending the school prizegiving evening to award the trophy.

Each year in late October work gets underway to distribute poppies and collecting tins to shops and schools in the Brighouse area to support the British Legion Poppy Appeal.

On Rememberance day the President attends and we donate to provide a wreath for the cenotaph.

Santa Sleigh Picture

Every year in December, we join forces with 3 other local fund raising groups and take the Santa Sleigh round the streets of different areas of Brighouse.

Well supported by all residents of these areas this raises funds which are ring-fenced for local deserving causes in the Brighouse area.

At the start of December we take the time to visit the rest centre in the middle of Brighouse and put up all the Christmas Decorations and if needs be buy some replacements. This is greeted by the volunteers as "the start of Christmas"!

A few weeks into December, we take over the running of the rest centre and provide free tea, coffee and mince pies to anyone calling in. (The mince pies are kindly donated by Tesco)

Rest Centre At Christmas

Also at the start of December sees the dedication of the annual "Tree of Lights" at Sainsburys.

To remember a loved one at Christmas people "buy" a light and all proceeds go towards that years announced charity or worthy cause.

We provide the Christmas tree and Lights and Sainburys provide the power and collect donations. 

Thanks Sainsburys

 Primary Schools Quiz.

This has become an annual event for us and is usually held in March and kindly hosted by Hipperholme Grammar School. Each of our Brighouse Primary Schools is invited to enter a team and who tested on 10 rounds of questions on a wide range of topics.

We have always been very impressed by the knowledge displayed by the children and the winners and runners up are invited to our Rotary District Final.  A cup is awarded to the winning team and medals for the winners and runner up team and certificates for all.
