Ours is a friendly club of approximately 46 members, formed in February 1924. We meet each Thursday at 12.30 at the Rose and Crown Hotel in Tonbridge. Our major fundraising events of the year are the Tonbridge Half Marathon, which we organise jointly with Tonbridge Lions Club, the Rotary Golf Day which will be held this year at the Nevill Golf Club in Tunbridge Wells, and the Scarecrow Trail held over the May bank holiday weekend.
We support many local community groups and events, and raise money for local and international charities, including Shelter Boxes, Hospice in the Weald, Kent Air Ambulance, the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust and Demelza Hospice Care for Children. The President's charity for the current year is Hospice in the Weald.
Our Community and Vocational Service projects include a Young Inventors Competition, the annual Young Enterprise Speaker's Competition, Kids Out, Senior Citizens' theatre visits and country drive & tea, and mock interviews at local schools.
