Rotary International is as the name suggests also concerned abbout the lives and hardships in other parts of the world. Witney Rotarians embrace this with a number of overseas projects including two in Kenya, one in Belarus, and recently one supporting Rotarians in Liberia as their country fights to overcome Ebola.
Underlying these projects is the worldwide fight to Eradicate Polio completely. As a club we are proud that one of our former Rotarians was at the heart of the campaign in 1985 to bring this to the attention of Rotarians across the world. We are also proud that the club has continued to meet it's financial commitments to this fight every year since then.
Witney, once famous worldwide for it's 'Witney Blankets', is these days a vibrant town of some 28,000 inhabitants in which the Rotary Club plays an important part.
Our club was Chartered in 1955 and so in March 2015 we will celebrate our Diamond Jubilee. Plans are already being made to celebrate this important milestone with a Fun Day at Manor Farm Cogges, so keep an eye on our Future Events Calendar listed on this website for more details of what's happening nearer the time.
Rotary International is a worldwide network of over one million men and women involved in relevant social causes, striving to change and improve the quality of life while having fun and building lasting friendships.
Ask any Rotarian and they will tell you of their desire to 'give something back' to their community.
In turn we ask you to consider adding your support to help to improve our community.
Mike Alexander, President 2014-15
