Youth and Community
The Bursary Awards are made each year to students studying for careers in the public sector. This year's award of £300 each was made to students at MK University Hospital NHS Trust, Catherine Agunede, Shinta Francis & Rochelle Archer.
We do a number of things to support the local community and develop young talent.
We support a number of Rotary competitions including the Technology Tournament run collectively by the clubs in Milton Keynes and the Rotary Young Photographer competition.
We usually sponsor at least one student each year to train for the Rotary Young Leadership Award (RYLA).
Every year we award bursaries of upto £400 to students, who are engaged in training to enter the caring professions. This is open to students from across Milton Keynes.
To support the local community, we have over the last few years provided marshalls for the Midnight Moo in aid of Willen hospice and manned a water station on the MK Marathon every year since its inception in 2012.
We also take part in other projects. For example we recently worked with Flitwick Vale club to remodel a garden for use by a child with Cerebral Palsey (see the page on Joseph's Garden).
