Welcome from current president David Heward to the website of The Rotary Club of Hemel Hempstead.
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 Â£19 000 after the Tsunami, and over Â£5 000 following the local explosion at the oil storage depot.details
Teams of three are challenged to speak in public. Professional judges assess the skill of the teams. In 2018, a Team from Astley Cooper School reached the District Finals.details
Community service is one of the Avenues of Service which encourages Rotarians to offer service to their communities. Every Rotary club and every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communitiesdetails
Every June Rotarians drive children and their helpers from a local special needs school to Whipsnade Wildlife Park for a day of fun.details
Use your (old) tools - Tools Collection for Africa
Each year we arrange to collect unwanted tools from local people. The tools are then sent for refurbishment before being distributed in needy areas in Africa.details
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.
