£5000 raised for Rotary charities during our club's Annual Charity Golf Day at Sweetwoods Golf Club on Monday 4th October 2021
The event organised under the Fundraising team by Roger Lewis and his team was a resounding success.
Are you the type of person who wishes to contribute to your community with a group of like-minded people?
Do you believe that now is the time to put helping others above self-interest?
Then Rotary could be for you.
Whilst Rotary is a world-wide service organisation and a Charity, it is community-based with local club membership.
Meridian Rotary Club has therefore enjoyed a long history of service to the local community.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.Details
EAST GRINSTEAD MERIDIAN ROTARY
Team Leader: Lucia Frazao
Over the years Meridian Rotary has been involved with our local schools, both Junior and Secondary, in a range of projects. Now, after these challenging times of disease and restrictions, we are very keen to rekindle our links with the Junior and Secondary schools in the East Grinstead area.
We would like to provide all children and young people with several youth opportunities and engaging hands-on projects, namely Young Chef, RYLA course, Youth Speaks: a Debate, Help Scheme, Design a Plate and Meridian Star Award.
These projects will provide all participants with unique opportunities to express themselves through different activities as well as develop a wide range of critical skills such as collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, self-esteem, confidence, and creativity. By getting involved in such innovative and engaging projects, children and young people will be able to use imagination and experiment with new ways of facing and solving problems. Ultimately, they will be able to become much more proactive as authors and creators of their own educational path and personal growth.
We detail the various projects below and we would very much welcome your school’s involvement.
Reward personal achievement that is displayed or performed in a way that is supportive of others, the environment in their school, or the community.
Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a 6 day residential leadership course in which young people learn and enhance their leadership skills while having fun and making new friends. What are the advantages?
Build communication and problem-solving skills by connecting with leaders in your neighbourhood and around the world.
Young Chef is one of several youth initiatives It allows young people to demonstrate and develop their culinary abilities. Rotary Youth Competitions provide opportunities for young people to showcase their talents, from local heats to national finals.
YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES 2021 - 2022
Youth Speaks is a national competition for young people aged 11 to 18 to develop and improve their public speaking and debating skills. Teams of three students give speeches about their chosen subject and answer questions from the audience within strict time limits.
December – January 2022
The Help Scheme was established so that we could provide some assistance to schools that identify a need for uniforms, books, school trips, and other items for children whose families are experiencing hardship or financial difficulties in supporting their education. October 2021
Design A Plate
Design a plate will allow children to develop their creative skills and share their talents by expressing their own interpretation of a relevant theme. Children design a piece of artwork. Then they will transfer this to their plate and decorate it.
We hope you find these of interest. We will be pleased if you would let us know which projects you would like to embrace.
