Support for Charities

One of our major aims is to get involved in our local communities and support local charities, helping those most in need. Individual Rotarians can get involved as much or as little as their time will allow.

In addition to our club being active at a local level, Rotary International has created a charitable trust fund - the Rotary Foundation, who's objective is to achieve world understanding and peace through international charitable and educational programmes. One of its most well known and ambitious projects has been PolioPlus, a global effort to rid the world of this crippling disease. Rotary has played a key part in immunization campaigns throughout the world, and polio is now very close to being eradicated.

If you have any charities or volunteering opportunities that you would like our club to get involved in, please contact our President.
