Charity working with people at risk of homelessness, the homeless, people experiencing mental heath additonal support needsDetails
We are located in the ancient market town of Ormskirk in West Lancashire, 13 miles north of Liverpool. We take our name from the iconic clock tower in the centre of the town which is famous for being home to one of only 3 churches in England with both a tower and a steeple!
Founded in 2009, Clocktower is an active club with a current membership of over 50 men and women who strive to follow the Rotary International motto of "Service before Self". In accordance with new Rotary guidance our club is fresh, modern and relevant. We are always looking to recruit new members to our ranks and welcome visitors who would like to get a taste of the social and service opportunities offered.

What we do
The club will appeal to those who want to get together with like-minded people, on a regular basis, for evening meetings and social events and who want to support local, national and international charities.
Community initiatives supported both financially and with the investment of time and energy by club members include the Birchwood Centre for Young People, local heat of national Rotary Young Chef competition, Christmas gifts for the elderly, and a popular annual Afternoon Tea Party for the elderly. In addition, every year, helped by numerous members of the wider community, we undertake our hugely successful annual programme of knitting chicks which are filled with creme eggs and sold for the benefit of several local charities.
International initiatives include funding Shelter Boxes for disaster zones, Rotary Foundation and of course the on-going worldwide End Polio Now campaign. In collaboration with other local Rotary clubs we participate in street collections for various pertinent causes.
Other events and activities are many and varied, including quiz nights, wine-tasting evenings, family walks and picnics, sailing on Lake Windermere, hosting Pearl of Africa children's choir, Race for Life and beach cleaning! Some members of the club have formed the Tick Tock Singers, a community choir which holds concerts and entertains groups throughout the year.
We meet on Wednesdays at 19:15 for 19:30(Dinner meeting only 2nd Wednesday of the month. Other meetings as advertised on our web site. ) Varies at present - please contact secretary
