The club also supports a number of causes introduced directly by our members and their families. Close links have been fostered with these charities:

In 2014-15 we made grants to:
The Syrian Humanitarian Refugee Crisis - a grant was made to PARD (Popular Aid for Relief and Development, Beirut - a highly respected NGO, fully experienced in the distribution of aid in the city of Beirut) facilitating access to the Syrian refugees for the urgently needed medical & hygiene requirements. The Rotaract Club of Beirut provided the vital link between PARD and Bideford Bridge.
One of Rotary International's long-term objectives is to 'End Polio Now', and to contribute to the achievement of that objective, and in the celebration of Rotary Day on 23 February, the two Bideford Clubs worked in partnership to raise money from the public in return for a commemorative purple crocus. Together the clubs raised almost £2,000, all of which will be used in the fight to eradicate polio by 2018.
