About us


I joined Skipton Craven Rotary Club six years ago and it is an honour now to take on the role of President. I realise though, that President is just a title for the figurehead of the Club and, thankfully, I have no end of people to give me advice.

During those six years I have had great fun helping the Club to do what it does so well.  Raising monies for charity. I would like to say a huge thank you to every one of you who donate so willingly when my colleagues and I are out collecting with Santa, and when we are collecting in the local supermarkets. Thank you also to all of you who support our Santa Fun Run.

It is a privilege for me to be President this year when the Fun Run is starting in Skipton High Street on Sunday 25th November 2018, the day the Christmas Lights are being switched on.

The Rotary Motto is “Service Above Self.” To me, that is having fun whilst benefitting others.

If anyone would be interested in seeing how we do this, then please visit our website, www.skiptoncravenrotaryclub.co.uk, and come and dip your feet in at one of our meetings.

Thank You.
