Fundraising for Charities
Nailsworth Rotary Club arranges many fundraising events each year and the funds raised in recent years have helped a wide range of organisations.
Nailsworth Rotary Easter 2019 Trolley Dash
Great Fun with the Trolley Dash on Sunday 14th April. Min Hogg from Rockness, Nailsworth, was the lucky winner of goods to the value of £250 at Morrisons. The dash was a family event in more ways than one. Min is having a significant birthday this week, and has just celebrated the birth of a baby granddaughter, not to mention a raft of family birthdays. Congratulations to Min and all the family, enjoy your wonderful week! The Trolley Dash raised money for local and national charities, and has been an annual event for several years.
Discover the Artist
How easy do you think it is to spot paintings or drawings produced by established or up-and-coming artists? Well, in August 2018 we held a charity art sale in Stroud where all of the original artworks were on sale for only £40 each. This event was entitled Discover The Artists and it raised over £7,000 for local arts charities and other Rotary charities. This successful event will be held again, in August 2020, at the Stroud Subscription Rooms.
Nailsworth Rotary Club raised over £3,100 for GWA Ambulance, MIND and ShelterBox at its Charity Golf Day at Minchinhampton Golf Club last April. We would like to thank all those who played, helped and provided the large number of raffle prizes.

Five Valleys Firework Display
Wow — our 2018 event was another amazing night! The weather was very good, and the-show goes from strength to strength every year. This takes three Rotary clubs, 100 volunteers from the area and the magic of an award-winning Firework display team to make this one of the very best — anywhere.
