Thank you for visiting our website and welcome from Rotary Club of Misbourne Matins. Our Club has around forty members with an equal split of ladies and men. We have great fun supporting our community by raising funds for local charities including Iain Rennie, Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Scannappeal, Arctic One and many others. These past two years have been particularly difficult for so many people and we supported local schools by raising funds for IT equipment. We also provided funds and donations for two local food banks.
This year we will continue to support and help to finance specialists in teaching life skills and first aid. We will fund a number of river trips on a specially adapted boat so that children and adults with mobility and special needs can experience a fun day out on the Thames.
The Club also works with local schools to provide visits by Pudsey Bear and this helps raise funds for Children in Need.
We carry out international projects with partner Rotary clubs and have supported an orphanage in India. At the orphanage we have financed the building of classrooms. We helped build a medical centre in a village in Nepal, and rain water tanks for homes in Bali where they do not have a ground water supply.
During the early months of 2022 we witnessed the worsening situation in Ukraine and as a response to this the UK has been welcoming Ukrainian visitors into our communities. In the Gerrards Cross area alone we have some 140 families being hosted by local people and we at Misbourne Matins RC are committed to assisting in every way we can. Members of the club visit 'The Hub' in Chalfont St Peter on Tuesdays and Thursdays to have coffee and to chat with Ukrainian people to help them in developing their English conversational skills as well as knowledge of the country and its culture. It is normal practice for the club president to choose a charity or cause for their year in office and I am dedicating my year to Ukraine, something I feel passionately about and something I think that most people can get behind and assist with if they can.
