The Yate and District Rotary Club
Chartered in October 1991
Located approximately 11 miles from the centre of Bristol, Yate and District Rotary Club is a dual-gender club of approximately 30 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 - an event which continues to go from strength to strength! We also organised a successful annual quiz night which is held at The Yate International Academy.
Our latest fundraising campaign is a fantastic Tree of Light which is situated on the edge of Yate Shopping Centre. Please visit the Tree of Light web page to view the Book of Celebration and where you can make a donation to celebrate a person, an achievement or event.
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 suppotive in the erradication of POLIO throughout the world.
