ABOUT BRACKLEY ROTARY
A brief summary...
Founded in 1973, Brackley Rotary Club is an inclusive club with 28 members.
The heart of the club is the weekly meeting- normally on a Thursday evening in Brackley when there is a two-course dinner at Hummingbirds Bistro, Market House Courtyard, Brackley Market Place (NN13 7AB). Speakers are invited to the meetings in addition to planning and implementing our service projects, both local and international.
Many members come to our weekly meeting but attendance is to the best of one’s ability – there’s no attendance requirement. We recognise people are so busy these days that they attend when they can. Those who turn up irregularly are welcomed whenever they are able to join us.
Social events are also organised for our members, families and friends. However, Rotary is primarily about service to others…
We get involved with a variety of activities, often collaborating with other organisations with the objective of helping the local community and raising funds for local, national and international charities. More detail about these activities can be found on the other pages of this website.
Charitable funds are raised in various ways, whether by organising events, street collections or something more adventurous… Three of our members and two guest riders undertook a sponsored bike ride from London to Paris raising over £3,000 for charitable causes. A club member undertook a sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, raising £1,100. (The club’s charity registration number is 1032505.)
