Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Jedburgh
|EBAY SHOP||Lend With Care|
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Jedburgh, from President Steve Smith all the members.
We are a relaxed, friendly club which meets every Thursday at the Carter’s Rest in Jedburgh for a meal, to listen to guest speakers, take part in inter-club activities and to plan ways in which we can help the local community, the wider district and at the international level. We welcome new members, including female members whom we are actively trying to recruit in the interests of gender balance. We also welcome those who may not wish to be full members but who may wish to be helpers or ‘friends’ of the club.
Our activities include assisting young people in their efforts to help developing countries and to develop themselves as people. We raise funds for local projects, causes and charities in the Jebdurgh area, throughout the Borders and in the world. For example we are involved in raising funds for the Margaret Kerr Palliative Care Unit at
Our club raises funds in various ways, including our annual coffee morning, car boot sales, plant sales and our highly successful EBAY project which generates a very considerable income. We are on ‘Facebook’ and are a registered charity in our own right. We are currently in the process of inviting a major local employer in Jedburgh to take up corporate membership of the club – a ground-breaking initiative.
As President for 2012-2013 I welcome any interest in our work and hope you will consider supporting our many activities or even consider becoming a member. We are a forward-thinking club which tries to help to make the world a better place whilst having fun doing so, following the Rotary International motto: “Service Before Self.”
