A message from the president

Welcome to the web site for The Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry.

The worldwide family of Rotary is one of the largest organisations in the world devoting itself to helping and supporting charities, good causes and those in need. It has been instrumental in the near eradication of polio all around the world. The Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry is a club that follows those ideals as it supports many local charities in our area, it contributes financially to a number of International projects and provides help and practical support to projects in the community. At the same time members enjoy the company of a group of like-minded people as well as having fun being pro-active in the raising of funds for our causes. Look on the website for the programme of activities this club undertakes.

This year we are continuing to support the Rotary Youth Leaders Award, a project helping 16/17 year olds acquire real leadership skills;  Contact the Elderly programme which brings together elderly pensioners who may otherwise not be able to see and join others in the same position; we have projects in both Africa and India supporting needy children; a number of Bursaries for youngsters and groups in the Wakefield area to help them develop skills in music and drama. These are just a snapshot of the things we do.

The club welcomes all who have an interest in joining the Rotary family, either as full members or as Associate members (for those who are either not sure or who cannot devote a large amount of time but nonetheless want to give something back to their community in practical ways).

Are you one of those people? Do you want to come and see what Rotary is all about? Then why not come along to one of our weekly meetings at the Hotel St Pierre in Newmillerdam. Contact details are on the web site, so please let our Secretary know and you will be made most welcome.

We look forward to meeting you.
