Our Aims for 2018-2019

The 'Rotary Year' begins on 1st July, when a new Club President takes office.

This year, Sudbury Rotary Club's President is Tony Platt, who will decide the Club's direction for the year. Tony joined Sudbury Rotary Club six years ago and is well known in the town in various roles.

Plans for the Presidential year include establishing “Rotakids” in some local primary schools, alongside our existing environmental and career development work and annual sponsorship for Rotary Youth Leadership awards. Internationally we will be continuing our support for a community school in Tanzania and through existing links with the Mali Development Group, for street children in Mali. We intend to continue to run the various community events for which we have become well-known together with perhaps one or two new events such as Apple Pressing and a “President’s Concert".

Members of the Club are appointed to one or more of various Committees, and it is to these that targets are devolved.  The Club Committees include the following :

Administration & Member Services - to ensure the financial viability and smooth and efficient running of the Club and special events, offering a variety of interesting speakers and activities.

Community Projects & Events - organising events and projects, helping to raise funds and the profile of Rotary and ensuring the local community is aware of the good work which Rotary does.

Environment & Youth - maintaining the programme planned by them regarding their work with schools, including Crucial Crew and setting up Rotakids at one local primary school and developing this elsewhere as opportunities permit.

Foundation & International - taking forward plans to raise awareness and funds for a number of projects in developing countries, especially those providing education for school children and skills training for teenagers and adults, as well as continuing to promote ‘End Polio Now’ and other Foundation initiatives

Membership - increasing membership, developing Friends of Rotary and Sudbury Rotary Community Forum and ensuring a "Membership" presence at all Rotary events.
