News Update

Santa Collections Raised more than £5,100 - Thank You!

Our collections around the streets of Ickenham and North Hillingdon and at Waitrose Ruislip, combined with our stall at the Ickenham Festival Evening raised more than £5,100 for the "Mencap Pool" (Hillingdon South Society for Mentally Handicapped Children) and other charities supported by our club.  A big thank you to all who turned out to see Santa and also to all those who helped us with the collection rounds.

If you liked seeing Santa and fancy helping us collect next year, contact us through the link above.

"Lift Off" with London's Air Ambulance

Early September saw a dozen of us make the trip up to The Royal London Hospital to meet with the team from London's Air Ambulance for whom we raised £8,000 at our Annual Charity Golf Day (see further down the page).  Great weather allowed us up to the helipad and a call-out saw the Air Ambulance take off for a four-mile trip - not often we get to see our funds in close-up action!

Annual "Big Ed" Quiz Night

In October we hold our only club funds fundraising night.  Hotly contested each year, the quiz had for several years seen our neighouring Pinner Rotary club victorious.  In 2015 they came so close again, only beaten on the tiebreak question "How many rooms are in the White House" which saw "Horizontal Stripes" (pictured) emerged as the winners. For 2016, RC Pinner have clearly been at the knowledge bank because back they came to take the crown again!

Edinburgh comes to Hillingdon

In what is becoming something of an annual tradition our members and partners were in for a real treat in early July - a preview of a show being taken to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!  Our member Joan Greening is a well-established author & she arranged for her show "The Allergic Audience" to be performed just for us at the Ruislip Conservative Club. Actresses Julia Munrow & Julia Rufey comprised the cast and wowed us all.

McMillan Coffee Morning

We're proud to announce that a coffee morning as part of McMillan great coffee morning, organised in October by Brenda Udall, one of our members, raised £315.  Well done Brenda - such a worthy cause!!

Charity Golf Day

Tuesday 19th July 2016 saw us run our 21st Annual Golf Day, at Batchworth Park Golf Club.  33 teams of 3 took on the challenge in mostly great weather for golf, with the winners being It&ly Hair & Beauty .  Of course the big winner was London's Air Ambulance to whom we donated the proceeds of the day, raising £8,000.

We'll be running this year's Golf Day on Tuesday 25th July 2017.  Use the contact form above if you'd like to enter a team.

"Weekly walk"

Just like the local schoolchildren, we're "walking once a week".  Every Sunday we gather at either Ruislip Lido (cafe) or Rickmansworth Aquadrome (car park) for a lesiurely stroll (about 1.5 - 2 miles).  Then we get down to the important business - coffee and a chat.  To find out where we're walking this week and let us know you're coming with us, drop us a line using the Contact form dropdown and select Weekly Walk.  Look forward to seeing you.

Polio Eradication Update

For almost 30 years it's been Rotary's International prime goal to work towards the eradication of Polio.  While we have encountered a recurrence of infection in Nigeria last year, the overall number of cases is now down to 5 in 2017, an all-time low.

We work with Young People

Rotary in Great Britain and ireland (RIBI) runs nationwide competitions for Young People - entries are organised locally by clubs and winners go forward to area, regional and national finals. We help to organise our local round of the public speaking competition "Youth Speaks"; and encourage young people to enter other competitions.  We also help with reading at local schools and with mock interviews

We work with Local Charities

Every year we support a variety of local charities including The Samaritans, , Michael Sobell Hospice and others.

We work with National Charities

Every year we devote all of the proceeds of our annual Charity Golf Day to a single charity; In 2015 we gave £9,000 to RNLI. We also suppport other National Charities in more limited ways.

We work with International Charities

We support many International Projects, directly through the Rotary Foundation, one of the world's largest private charities, but also through a variety of other international charities.

The Rotary Club of Elthorne Hillingdon, chartered in 1978, has a Trust Fund which is a registered charity (No.1032574).
