Charitable donations are usually obtained by holding fundraising social activities.
The Club has long standing commitments to maintaining Wyggeston’s Wood, supporting Kids Out, End Polio Now and the Gondar Hospital in Ethiopia.
We seek as new members those who can commit to a regular attendance at meetings and who wish to contribute to the life and work of the Club. Members have the opportunity to serve as officers of the Club.
As with all Rotary events, neither religion nor politics are discussed at meetings.
We host a number social activities for members’ families and friends each year including
dining out, garden parties, BBQ’s, quiz night etc.
Whilst we are keen to embrace the traditions that have been established within the Club,
we are also keen looking to the future with a modern eye and arranging our meetings to suit the wishes of the majority of members.
The Club has a strong nucleus of experienced members but it is the more recent and younger members who will in turn secure the Club’s future.
The Club holds several fundraising events each year we also believe in working actively with and for communities. The Club has always been active in supporting our natural environment and working with local organisations. With increasing concerns over our climate.
