Supported causes such as the Alia Coull Foundation, Step by Step in moray, Elgin Youth Café, Cornerstone Community care, volunteering Connects Cultures, Hopeman Based Charities, Lucy's Fight, Rotakidz and many more.
Supporting other events is one arm of Rotaract Moray but the club has always been passionate about getting its own name out there by organising their own events. Rotaract Moray have organised two very successful community Carnivals, two masquerade balls, A Night at the Musicals, coffee mornings, Soup and sweet lunches, fashion shows only to name a few of the events.
Rotaract Moray is definitely here to stay as a Club within Moray and the ideas and enthusiasm from members will continue to drive the club in a positive and upwards way.
The purpose of Rotaract is to provide an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service.
The goals of Rotaract are:
1. To develop professional and leadership skills;
2. To emphasise respect for the rights of others, and to promote ethical standards and the dignity of all useful occupations;
3. To provide opportunities for young people to address the needs and concerns of the community and our world;
4. To provide opportunities for working in co-operation with sponsoring Rotary clubs; and
5. To motivate young people for eventual membership in Rotary.
Originally founded in the United States in 1968, Rotaract came to the UK and Ireland in the early 1970s. There are just currently over 60 clubs in the Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I), and more than 7,500 clubs across 155 countries worldwide.
