Some of the things that we do

Visiting Rotarians in France
A large group of Rotarians from our Club and their partners will be visiting France this year, touring vineyards and looking around the Abbey in Cluny before meeting Rotarians from the Maconnais.
Children in Need
The Rotary Club of Cambridge came out in force to support the Children in Need collection in 2015.
Rotarian Paul Henry arranged the turnout this year which was in the Grafton Centre where we collected £850 for a very good cause and met the Mayor and Mayoress of Cambridge together with several toyland characters.
Bridge the Gap
The annual Bridge the Gap walk gives everyone the opportunity to take a leisurely stroll and visit some of the beautiful Cambridge Colleges, whilst raising money for a good cause.
This well-loved event invites you to join us to support Arthur Rank Hospice and Press Relief, two charities directly benefiting our local community. For the first time in its fourteen year history, the event began on Parker’s Piece from 9.30am, right in the heart of the city centre. This year’s route led walkers around Emmanuel, Christ’s, Jesus, St. John’s, King’s, Pembroke and Downing Colleges, exploring some of their most picturesque and intriguing places.
During the day teams of Rotary volunteers under the guidance of Rotarian Paul Henry helped erect gazebos, distribute water around the site and many other tasks.
On display we had a Shelter Box (follow this link for more details) with all its contents displayed which is a Rotary initiative to provide shelter, cooking, clean water and other basic needs to those made homeless by various natural disasters around the world.
Working with the Cambridge News, Cambridge University and other sponsors.
Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is a Leadership programme coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the Globe.
Young people aged 14-30 are sponsored by Clubs, including the Rotary Club of Cambridge, to attend the event run by the club's district committee which in our case is at Graffham Water.
Participants are chosen for their leadership potential.
