Welcome to Stokesley Rotary Club
North East England
Stokesley is a small North Yorkshire market town on the banks of the River Leven, which is home to about 5000 people. The town, with a lovely Georgian market square is only around four miles from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and about 15 miles from the pretty Yorkshire coastal resort of Saltburn.
Peter Chandler is this year's Club President and his chosen charity is Purple4Polio. In October each year Stokesley Methodist Church is lit up in purple for World Polio Day. Rotary's focus is on Purple4Polio, as we continue the challenge of eradicating Polio from the world. There are now just a handful of polio cases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and we are so close to finally eliminating this dreadful disease. Stokesley Rotary also hosts a coffee morning and Purple Bring and Buy fundraiser in the Church during the morning.
The Club and what we do
The Club was founded in 1980 and comprises a group of people who volunteer their skills and expertise across a variety of areas to deliver diverse programmes that benefit local and international communities. Over the years the Club has raised and distributed tens of thousands of pounds and has instigated many local, national and international projects.
Before COVID the Club met on Tuesday evenings in the Blacksmith’s Arms in Swainby. Currently we are unable to hold face-to-face meetings indoors, so may )if not all) of our meetings are held on Zoom. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. (Our website is www.stokesleyrotary.org). We frequently invite inetrantionally renowned speakers to our Zoom meetings, usually related to our objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest. We also have an ongoing programme of outdoor social visits and community projects.
Please take a look at the programme options so that you can see what we’ve done in the past, and what we plan for the future – you may like to join or support us.
