French trip to the Maconnais and Hermitage

23 of us enjoyed a splendid tour of the local vineyards and Cluny Abbey in perfect weather at the end of May.

Our trip ended with a wonderful dinner (Burgundian snails as a starter of course!) with representatives from the Rotary Club of Macon.

Group leader Rotarian Edward Thackray, pictured here with Frédérique Steurer (President Elect) and Raymond Gunn (Secretary) of the Rotary Club of Macon, commented "This was the ninth trip to France and Italy that we have made and not one of us really wanted to come home so soon!"

We were presented with two magnums of Chateau Fuissé Tete de Cru Pouilly-Fuissé 2014 in their original wooden cases for our auction of promises on 26th September 2014.

"Rotarians in sale bid to aid refugees

Rotary Club members in Cambridge are doing their bit to help Syrian refugees - backed by Jeffrey Archer.

Members of Cambridge Rotary are planning a charity auction to raise money for displaced families.

Lord Archer of Grantchester is an accomplished auctioneer, who has given his support to many similar events in the past, and he will run the sale, which is scheduled for September.

The money raised will be used to provide vital aid for refugeees such as medical equipment and water filters.

Graham Sanderson, president of the Rotary Club of Cambridge said "Due to the plight of these refugees, Rotary feels that we should be doing something to help".

End polio now...

 Another child is vaccinated

We are this close

Although polio has not been seen in Great Britain and Ireland for many years, it is vital that we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide in order that it can never return. 

Rotary clubs all over Great Britain and Ireland are inviting schools and youth groups such as brownies and cubs to participate in a new initiative, GROW YOUR OWN CROCUS. The initiative is designed to educate youngsters about the devastating disease of polio and how Rotary is working to eradicate it from the world.

The purple crocus is the symbol or Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio and is the focus of this project.

Advantages of Rotary Membership

Rotary is a membership organisation open to men and women.

We like to ensure that the membership of our Club is as representative as possible of the Cambridge business and professional community.

It provides the opportunity for busy people to get to know a broad spectrum of local people who perhaps they would not otherwise meet.

During his presidential year, one of our members gave his view on why he was a Rotarian. Click the following link 'Why I am a Rotarian' to read what he said.
