Some thoughts from Andrew

Having joined Knutsford Rotary in 2019, I am proud to be stepping into the President’s shoes for 2023/24 year and continuing the work we collectively do to support and help others through fellowship and friendship.

Being part of Rotary is rewarding and an opportunity to meet new people knowing our motto of “service above self” will benefit the lives of others and through our endeavours bring enjoyment too. The coming year is one which we will celebrate through more social opportunities, bringing members, family, and friends together, helping to grow the club for future years.

  • Through Rotary Fellowship and Friendship, we endeavour to: -
  • Support local charities and other local organisations.
  • Make a positive difference through volunteering and raising charitable funds.
  • Work with other groups and the International Rotary network to support good causes.

Help us make a difference in how we can support and benefit others.

What’s it like being part of Rotary Knutsford?

Rotary Knutsford is a group of people with a range of different life experiences who share a common goal in supporting and helping others through volunteering and giving their time to benefit local communities and various charitable organisations.

Ultimately, it’s about making a real difference, which helps not just people we know, but also supporting others we don’t know. Sometimes it’s meeting new people or individuals that inspires us and others to simply get involved in making something happen that has a positive effect on people’s lives for the better.

Whether it’s by giving our time, organising events, or arranging social activities that allow us to help raise funds to support good causes or simply having some fun. Laughter and doing something different can help people’s well-being and bring a sense of achievement to someone’s day.

What Projects have we helped support?

One of our biggest and most successful collaborative projects was the “Meet and Greet” initiative we led at Knutsford Community Hospital, when we worked with local organisations and GP’s and Nursing staff to deliver the COVID vaccination programme. Nearly 3,000 volunteering hours were given by various members, their families and other organisational group members to make this a success.

Two other regular events we support each year is Remembrance Sunday, and the Knutsford Town Civic Parade, where we plan and co-ordinate the traffic management requirements to ensure the safety of those taking part in what are two special events in our Town calendar.

How much do we try and raise for good causes and charitable organisations?

Annually, we have managed to raise more than £10,000 through various initiatives or activities in Knutsford Town, allowing us to support charitable organisations or help local groups hold events that over the last year have benefited local charities and school children or refugee groups through our Rotary International charity work.

What else can you tell us about Rotary Knutsford?

In addition to our charitable activities, we have a programme of social events for members, ex members as well as family and friends, so we can encourage people to do something different, and help grow our club and get to know each other better.

We also meet twice each month at Cottons Hotel, Knutsford, on the evening of the 2nd and 4th Tuesday from around 7:00pm until 9.30pm. The evening provides the opportunity to discuss and plan our programme of social and charitable activities, as well as having an interesting and entertaining guest speaker to join us and enjoy a drink and bite to eat.

We welcome people to contact us to find out more about what we do and who would be interested in joining Knutsford Rotary. It’s about supporting the community, whilst enjoying the fellowship and friendship that comes from being part of Rotary and contributing through active involvement in the various social and fund-raising events we hold.
