WELCOME TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF BRETBY
I am pleased to welcome you to the website of the Rotary Club of Bretby. We are the evening Club for Burton upon Trent and the surrounding area and we meet every Monday at 6.45pm for 7.15pm (apart from Bank Holidays).
I have the honour to be the President of the Club for the Rotary year 2019-2020 and I invite you to browse the newly updated website, to gain information about our Club, how the Club works, what projects we support and how we enjoy ourselves. For non – Rotarians you will also learn about the global activities via the information on Rotary International.
If you are not a Rotarian then please look at either the top left ‘MENU’ which will take you to the 'NEW MEMBERS' section or the 'WHAT WE DO' button at the top right of this page – the drop-down Menu will also take you to New Members page. If you would like to talk to someone about joining us then please click the CONTACT “envelope” at the top of the page.
The program for this year combines the 3 ‘F’s – Fun – Fellowship & Fundraising. Everything thing we do whether it is a service project, fundraising or social event, the emphasis is on the word ‘FUN’.
Rotary is primarily a Service Organisation and this year we have two local organisation we will be working closely with – Burton YMCA and BACT – Burton Albion Community Trust. At national level we support Kids Out, a day out for disadvantaged or children with learning difficulties and the annual Stroke Awareness Day, where we take the blood pressures of members of the public and qualified medical staff advise on the results. Internationally we will be supporting Rotary’s own charity – The Rotary Foundation.
Other projects will continue to be involved in are:
End Polio Now – in 1985 Rotary set out to rid the world of polio and we 99.9% there!
Youth activities such as Rotary Young Leader Award to provide much needed training for young people before they go off into the world of work or higher education.
Support across the community, for schools and for both young and old, with hands-on work. Santa at Christmas will provide much needed funds and fun!
And much-much more!!!!
Rotarians are MAD – in that they MAKE A DIFFERENCE, locally, nationally and internationally
Why not come and visit us and judge for yourself?
Yours in Rotary
