About us

Geoffrey A Maldwyn-Jones PHF

President, The Rotary Club of Skipton Craven

It is my honour to be the President of the Rotary Club of Skipton Craven for the Rotary Year 2022 - 2023. 

I am an Addingham resident and long-time Rotarian, having previously been a member and Past-President of the Rotary Club of Ilkley and a former Assistant Governor for the Dales Group of Rotary Clubs.

Our Club is well known for its support to the community in Skipton and surrounding villages, both in terms of community activities and fundraising in support of local charities. 

The highly successful Skipton Santa Fun Run is now in its 13th year and has raised huge sums of money for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice and Marie Curie, as well as a host of local charities.  It is truly a ‘Fun’ Run (and walk) for all, which brings so much happiness to nearly 2000 participants each year. This year’s event will take place on Sunday 27th November.

We are also looking forward to bringing Santa and his sleigh to the streets of Skipton and surrounding villages at Christmas; and Santa will also be visiting Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets on various dates throughout December. And, we will be back at the local supermarkets or on the High Street collecting for numerous good causes such as Martin House Children’s Hospice, or to provide humanitarian aid to victims of natural disasters, wars and famines.

During the rest of the year, we will be active in support of local organisations who need help maintaining their grounds, such as local Churches, Ings CP School (SELFA) and the Raikes Burial Ground.

In addition to all this, this we have an active social programme, and two walking groups within the club.
