When Disaster Strikes - Our Fundraising Projects


When disaster strikes our members are among the first to organise local street collections to raise funds to help those affected. Our efforts raised over £19 000 after the Tsunami, and over £5 000 following the local explosion at the oil storage depot.

About us

 

Welcome: from Club president David Heward

 

 

We care about Communities

The reason we say this is because we often get asked "What does Rotary do?" We are a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, who action local, national and international projects. The Rotary movement is big, with 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. As you can imagine there are a lot of different projects going on.

Our Hemel Hempstead Club is involved in activities which concentrate largely on our local communities.  These include young people, the elderly, and those who are disadvantaged.  We raise funds in a variety of ways.  We also help  International communities when disaster strikes or where we think we can improve living conditions.

2016 saw the arrival of our Santa Sleigh, which has been made available to a range of community groups. In December 2017 our Santa activities raised over £13 000 to be distributed to local charities. For more detail, click here.

Do you want to know more about what we do? Do come along. Find out about membership and our Friends for Rotary scheme. There are many ways in our club you can get involved to be for your community.
