President Len’s Address

“Helping the Community”

Firstly, a big thank you to our past president, Phil Round. During the past year Phil has been very pro-active and has done a great job looking at how the club functions and the challenges faced in helping the club to move forward.

We are a vibrant club but recognise that to meet these challenges there will be a need for change. Several changes have been implemented, but we can’t stand still, and a key focus will be to continue our drive to modernise our club with new activities and different methods of working.

Our club covers a very giving community: Newton-le Willows, Earlestown, Burtonwood, Lowton and Golborne and our main drive will be to give a helping hand to those who generously support us at our Christmas Float and Beer Festival, which are our two main fundraising events. This will not only be in the form of donations but also networking and bringing groups together. Our priority will be to support local community groups, schools and other local organisations.

Our aim is to help others, but we also need help ourselves. Last year we offered local community groups the chance to become ‘Santa’s little helpers” for our float collections. This was very successful, and another way to connect with our communities and will be repeated this year.

We will also support communities around the world who are less fortunate than us. Rotary International and Foundation is the world’s fifth largest charity organization, and in recent years has been the main driver in eliminating polio. We will also continue to support Disaster Aid initiatives.

The Rotary motto is “Service above Self” and we stay true to the values associated with it. We will aim to achieve them through Fellowship and Fun so you will also see us involved in several other events in our community. To achieve this, we will be looking for new members who have the time and energy to spare, so if you are interested please contact us via the details on our website.

Finally, to dispel any myths we welcome all genders to our club. So, an interesting and exciting year in prospect and one where we can continue supporting and connecting with the community and at the same time having some FUN.

Many Thanks.

President Len
