Our activities follow two areas:
- Providing direct help and support in the community,
- Fund raising and making donations to good causes.
At our on-line Charter Evening Meeting on Thursday 5th November, President for the Rotary Year 2020-2021, Rotarian Denise Whetton, said the following in proposing the toast to Filey Rotary.
“I am sure this must be the oddest Celebration of Charter Night! In our 73 years of being awarded our Rotary Club of Filey Charter – all thanks to the terrible virus. However, we will not be beaten by it.
Therefore, if you would all like to raise your glass to 'The Rotary Club of Filey and its Founder Members.'
May we also continue to help both the local Community and internationally in the coming years.”
Principal Good Causes
We will continue to support the following organisations in the current Rotary year, though given the restrictionson events and fundraising, our help may not be so generous as previously.
Smiles to Tanzania A lot of Filey residents are aware of this charity and Iwe would like to maintain the support that the Club has provided in the past. This small Filey based registered charity has been making a big improvement to the lives of children on the island of Ukerewe, Lake Victoria, by helping them to be able to go to school through providing uniforms, pencils, books and solar lights (these also help their family). The charity has also managed to set up a medical fund for sick children with the help of Rotary Match Funding. The aim now is to raise more funding to enhance the chances of helping further children to receive and education
The second Charity is Scarborough and Bridlington Group of the MND Association who help and support people and their families coping with this cruel and life changing disease. This disease affects the brain, spinal cord, nervous system and muscles.
We will continue to support the local community's needs where we can, particularly focusing on needs arising out of the current Covid-19 emergency.
Our literacy support at the Ebor Academy, Filey, has had to be terminated because of the meeting restrictions currently in force. We have earmarked funds to finance a young person to attend the Rotary Leaders Course at Hebden Hye in July / August 2021.
We welcome all those who are interested in supporting us in our aims of helping those with need in our local community and further afield, either through Full or Associate Membership.,
