Information Evening at The Astley Arms Pub, Dukinfield,
4th October 2018
The next Information Evening of the Rotary Club of Dukinfield and Stalybridge will be held on Thursday 4th October at 8pm at the Astley Arms, 1 Chapel Street, Dukinfield, SK16 4BT.
This popular event gives local people the opportunity to find out more about the club and how it benefits the community whilst also giving charities and community organisations a chance to learn how to access charitable donations from the club.
The club has recently enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth in members across all ages and backgrounds, attracted by the combination of community action and fellowship that it offers. The evening will include sessions about Rotary International including the End Polio now campaign which is close to eradicating Polio across the world and Dukinfield and Stalybridge’s own international project at a school in Bangladesh. Closer to home the club’s projects in the local community and social events programme will be showcased including their famous ‘Wine Tasting’ and ‘Murder Mystery’ events.
Local charities and voluntary groups are urged to attend this event to find out more about the Club’s annual Dragons’ Den. The Den gives local organisations the chance to bid for a donation to support their activity or fundraise for a charitable cause and Rotary members will be available on 4th October to give further details about the 2019 Den and how to bid.
Members will also be on hand to answer any questions about the club in general, share their Rotary experiences and provide details for anyone wishing to join.
For anyone unable to come along to the event, more information on Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club, the charities the club supports and how to join can be found online at dandsrotary.co.uk or by calling 07730 586269.

Dragons's Den 5th April 2018
We held our annual Dragon's Den event once again this year and are pleased to say that 8 local charities/community groups in Dukinfield or Stalybridge attended to give a presentation about their work and how our donation would benefit them:
T21 Network (T21Network.org) - providing information, advice and a friendly face to parents, carers, families and friends of a person with Down's Syndrome
Tuesday Hyde Social - providing a warm, safe and accessible meeting place for those with learning disabilities to chat, play games and take part in art and crafts
Infinity Initiatives CIC (www.infinitycic.uk) - alleviating food poverty in local families throughout Tameside and linking in with other organisations to provide much needed support
Forget me not buddies (forgetmenotbuddies.wordpress.com) - run by carers and volunteers for carers, persons living with Dementia and family members whose lives are affected by a diagnosis of Dementia within their family
Mossley Community Association - providing a wide range of support to those in need in the local community
Dukinfield Bowling Club, Carrbrook Bowling Club and Dukinfield Cricket Club - providing an opportunity for people of all ages to meet others and keep active.
All groups received a donation from the Club to help them to continue their work in the local community.

Christmas Float collections December 2017
The Club collected more than £6700 during the Christmas float rounds this year, one of the highest amounts for as far back as we can remember. Many thanks to all of those in the local community who contributed. The money will be distributed in the coming year to deserving causes both in Dukinfield and Stalybridge and abroad.
Hack Back CIC
We had a delightful speaker in October 2017 - Anita Morris from an organisation called Hack Back CIC. This is an organisation that works with a wide range of individuals, all of whom come to them with significant barriers which prevent them from reaching their full potential in life. Hack Back helps these individuals to overcome their barriers in a number of ways, including interaction with animals, spefically birds of prey. Anita brought along 3 owls that she uses to help those who seek Hack Back's help, including Murray (shown in the picture) who even has his own social media pages (visit Murray the Owl on Twitter) and story books ! The Club made a donation to the organisation to help with the promotion of their work. For more information visit the Hack Back website.
