President Len’s Address

“Helping the Community”

Due to the ongoing situation and uncertainty with COVID the club has decided to extend both my role and the chairs of the committees until the end of the year. (Dec 20). Our new President, Geoff Shaw, will start his term in Jan 21 and his year will be extended to run for 18 months up until end of June 22.

We are currently targeting our activities on food poverty with other local organisations.

We are a vibrant club but recognise that to meet these challenges there will be a need for change. Several changes have been implemented, but we can’t stand still, and a key focus will be to continue our drive to modernise our club with new activities and different methods of working.

Our club covers a very giving community: Newton-le Willows, Earlestown, Burtonwood, Lowton and Golborne and our main drive will be to give a helping hand to those who generously support us at our Christmas Float and Beer Festival, which are our two main fundraising events. Unfortunately the beer festival has had to be cancelled and we will review our float later in the year. Our priority will be to support local community groups, schools and other local organisations, not just with cash donations but with practical help and assistance.

Our aim is to help others, but we also need help ourselves. Last year we offered local community groups the chance to become ‘Santa’s little helpers” for our float collections. This was very successful, and another way to connect with our communities and will be repeated this year.

We will also support communities around the world who are less fortunate than us. Rotary International and Foundation is the world’s fifth largest charity organization, and in recent years has been the main driver in eliminating polio. We will also continue to support Disaster Aid initiatives.

The Rotary motto is “Service above Self” and we stay true to the values associated with it. We will aim to achieve them through Fellowship and Fun so you will also see us involved in several other events in our community. To achieve this, we will be looking for new members who have the time and energy to spare, so if you are interested please contact us via the details on our website.

Finally, to dispel any myths we welcome all genders to our club. So, an interesting and exciting year in prospect and one where we can continue supporting and connecting with the community and at the same time having some FUN.

Many Thanks.

President Len
