Welcome to the Rotary Club of Ashburton/Buckfastleigh.
The Rotary Club of Ashburton/Buckfastleigh supports both local, national and international communities. Within the Ashburton and Buckfastleigh areas we are much involved with supporting the youth clubs and related activities, as well as the Memory Cafe.
During the current pandemic we have donated funds to the Ashburton and Buckfastleigh sewing groups that have made "scrubs" for the NHS and care home workers.
We have also donated nearly 170 Usborne dictionaries to seven local schools for presentation to the Year 6 students as they leave their Primary school.
We also support our own Rotary Foundation, the ongoing campaign to End Polio Now, and have a long-standing association with the charity Build on Books and the humanitarian work this organisation is doing in Sierra Leone.
Unfortunately our Art Exhibition and Choral Concert, usually held at Buckfast Abbey during the summer, has had to be cancelled this year, but we have every intention of holding both events again in 2021!
We are a happy Club of 20 men and women, of all backgrounds. We all contribute to various actvities run by the Club to raise funds to alleviate the needs of others both locally and wordwide.
However, fundraising doesn't have to be 'just hard work' - we also believe in friendship and fun! We hold Quiz Nights, we visit interesting places both near and far, as well as enjoying the fellowship of our weekly meetings (when we are allowed to meet in person again!)
