Located approximately 11 miles from the centre of Bristol, Yate and District Rotary Club is a dual-gender club of approximately 20 members.
We are an energetic group, which proves to be very beneficial, as our main fundraising activity each year is the annual South Cotswold Beer Festival. We also organise a successful annual quiz night which is held at The Yate International Academy and our Tree of Light, which is illuminated in Yate Shopping Centre from late November.
Other projects of ours have seen us supporting Aqua Boxes, Shelter Boxes, Life Straws, Kids Out, The Chernobyl Children's Lifeline Trust. We also support numerous local charities, such as Yate foodbank, Paul's Place, and many more.
Members of Yate and District Rotary Club enjoy lots of fun and fellowship (often accompanied by our partners), whilst at the same time supporting Rotary, both within the community and on an international scale. We have been very supportive in the eradication of POLIO throughout the world.
