AIMS
The club’s aims are, as with all Rotary Clubs, SERVICE ABOVE SELF, by serving the communitylocally, nationally and internationally and by developing fellowship & friendships.

 CLUB ETHOS
The Club was formed in 1995 as a dual gender breakfast club. The numbers of female and male members have been approximately equal throughout the Club’s existence.

 We are a friendly and enthusiastic Club and welcome everyone from all walks of life and professions who would like to help others through the aims & objects of Rotary.

 Becoming a Rotarian requires no formal qualifications in respect of religion, education,ethnicity or financial status but the essential qualifications are:

A sincere wish to be part of a Club that embraces the need to support charitable concerns in the local community and internationally.

We welcome all genders who would like to make a positive contribution to our Clu and help to foster our aims and objectives, particularly within the context of charity.

We also welcome any existing Rotarians looking to join a new Club.

 CHARITIES SPPORTED  -

The Leicester De Montfort Trust Fund Registered Charity No.1057617

Trustees:  Linda Foster - Mark Woodland - Jack Hunter - Maureen Jerman

Over the years the Club has supported many local, national and international charities.

In Rotary year 2021 – 2022 the Club supported:

The Salvation Army; Leicester South Foodbank; Rotary Foundation; ShelterBox; Samaritans Leicester; Rotary Ukraine Appeal; Gunjur Project Association.

 Charitable donations are usually obtained by holding fundraising social activities.

PROJECTS
The Club has long standing commitments to maintaining Wyggeston’s Wood, supporting Kids Out, End Polio Now and the Gondar Hospital in Ethiopia.

 ATTENDANCE 
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.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
We host a number social activities for members’ families and friends each year including
dining out, garden parties, BBQ’s, quiz night etc.

 THE FUTURE
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.

 THE COST of MEMBERSHIP
The annual subscription for 2022 – 2023 is £150
The cost of dining at the regular meetings is currently £10

DRESS CODE
Club members wear smart casual attire at weekly meetings

Charter celebrations are usually more formal events (dinner jacket for men, evening wear for ladies)
