Rotary in Gloucester Community Awards

 

 

Rotary in Gloucester Community Awards are organised by the four Rotary Clubs in the city – Gloucester, Rotary@Kingsholm, Gloucester Severn, and Gloucester Quays.

 

The aim of the Community Awards programme is to support organisations within the city area with a small grant which ‘will make a real difference’.  This is a small grants programme with awards of up to a maximum of £500.

 

2017 is the third year of this small grants programme and we have been greatly encouraged by the way small injections of cash have made a real and lasting differences to the running of community organisations in the city.

 

Background

 

The four Rotary Clubs are members of the worldwide network of approximately 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs operating in 200 countries throughout the world.    Rotary consists of inspired men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to improve lives in communities.  In the UK there are 1,750 Clubs.

 

Rotary’s mission is simply to serve others; to give something back; to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace by utilising the skills, talents and energy of our members collectively.

·       We want to bring about positive change in our neighbourhoods by fostering and building strong communities

·       We want to provide opportunities that will improve lives

·       We want to help eradicate poverty, hunger and preventable disease across the world

 

Our motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of Rotary members worldwide – to serve the community and put its needs before the member’s own.
