Donate-a-Dinner Appeal Christmas 2020
Five Rotary Clubs in Chelmsford are collaborating to provide a Christmas lunch to the many families in Chelmsford who cannot afford a traditional festive meal this year.details
Chelmsford Mildmay Rotary Club was founded in 1972 and has been active in the Chelmsford area ever since. We have 20 members, both men and women, all of whom wish to give service to the community and to meet socially as friends.
We meet for lunch every Tuesday at Little Channels, Pratts Farm Lane West, Little Waltham, CM3 3PR, for a programme of talks, presentations and discussions.
Our programme helps keep us aware of ways in which we might be of use.
Raising funds to support various local, national and international causes is an important part of our work.
Mildmay Matters is our quarterly online newsletter, which reports our activities.
We welcome new members but if you do not have time to take up full membership, you might prefer to become a Friend of Rotary. In this way you can still enjoy some social events, help with charity projects or just get a taste of what Rotary is all about.
Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland (known as RGBI) has 47,000 members and our club is just one of 1,700 clubs nationally.
Rotary International has 1.2 million members in 200 countries.
Purple4Polio campaign to End Polio Now
We have planted 30,000 purple crocuses, in partnership with other clubs, at RHS Hyde Hall as part of the Purple4Polio campaign. One strand of the campaign is an exciting partnership between the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and Rotary to plant six million crocuses across Britain and Ireland. Click on the image below to find out more about Purple4Polio.
We have also planted purple crocuses in Viaduct Meadows, Chelmsford Central Park.

Computers for Tanzania - last shipment
Since 2010 we have been involved in a project to send recycled computers from Essex schools and businesses to Tanzania, Africa. Following the successful shipment of our first three containers, each with 200 computers, printers and other equipment, we have now completed the fourth and final packing of a ship's container with over 300 large boxes of computer equipment and will not therefore be seeking further donations.Very many thanks to everyone who has donated. We have enjoyed tracking the ship's progress to Dar es Salaam - yes it has arrived! And the good news is that the container and its contents has been released to Amani - soon we will learn more of computers being put to good use. More details here
