The Rotary Club of Redditch has been established for over 70 years since its formation in 1947, and its Charter in 1948, and we look to the future with confidence. Established in the years of austerity following the Second World War, the club brought together a group of business and professional people committed to helping their community, and helping to rebuild peace in a shattered world.
Today, we are a group of men and women from varied backgrounds, wider than the original circle, but with that same commitment to helping communities both here and across the globe. You could be a part of our club as we continue to fulfill that commitment.
We welcome new members from all walks of life, who can use their experience, energy and enthusiasm to help us to help our local communities.
Our President for 2021/22 is Bichitra Das, a Consultant Ophthalmologist, whose long career in the NHS underpins his commitment to supporting local, national and global communities.
Face to face contact was limited due to Covid19 restrictions, but we remained in contact with fortnightly online meetings. We have now resumed our weekly Monday lunchtime meetings, in accordance with the Government's 'Road Map'.
During the course of the pandemic, we have supported various initiatives to assist NHS staff and other workers 'on the front line', and we have also procured used laptops and supplied them to schools to ensure all their pupils have access to online learning.
