Trent Bridge Rotary Club was formed in 1991 and is still going strong. We meet regularly on every second Tuesday, often with a mix of in-person and Zoom attendance, and have an interesting and varied programme of social events and speakers in addition to progressing our charitable and community work as a Rotary club.
Our main fund-raising event is the Great Nottingham Duck Race, which was held again in 2022 after a two-year absence.
The Great Nottingham Duck Race
This event consists of us selling tickets for a yellow plastic duck during Nottingham's Riverside Festival (and green ducks for our corporate sponsors). Each year we launch over 7,000 ducks into the River Trent from the suspension bridge and watch them race down towards the finish line at the world famous Trent Bridge. For more information please take a look at the event website here.
The final fund-raising event of 2019 was the Christmas Collection at Morrisons (Gamston) and ASDA (West Bridgford), to whom we are grateful for again allowing us to raise funds for the benefit of the local community and overseas charities.
A total of about £3,160 was raised from the generous shoppers, once again an increase on previous years. Well done, Father Christmases and your Little Helpers!
