As from March 2019, like all Rotary Clubs, we were thrown a curve ball with the Covid 19 situation. This meant that our regular meetings were curtailed so like many organisations, we were able to maintain contact on a “virtual basis”. Thankfully our regular meetings have now resumed at an excellent new (for us) location - The Stanwick Hotel NN9 6QY. Meetings are held on a fortnightly basis and we are now working on our future diary together with a number of exciting events.
The Covid scenario did not stop our fundraising. In the Rotary Year 2020/21, the Club donated more than £11,000.00 mainly due to the generosity of many of our Members and Associates who donated sums to the club. We also used some of our reserves and made a number of donations to very worthy local and international causes such as Northants Domestic Abuse Society, Nene Valley First Responders, Mercy Ships, Northants Carers, Rushden Night Shelter and Food Bank, End Polio Now and many others.
Rotary is the biggest service organisation in the world. In other words, Rotary exists to help people locally, nationally, and internationally.
Rotary Clubs and there are 500 of them in Great Britain alone, Us Website Aug2021 support local hospices, schools and students, elderly, disadvantaged and disabled people and they encourage them for their achievements as carers and students.
There are more than a million Rotarians spread across the whole world. They have formed themselves into clubs so that they can best help their communities and support those in great need. Let me give you some examples. Thirty years ago, Rotary made a pledge to the world’s children that they would get rid of polio from the planet so that no child would die or be disabled by the disease. They work with partners and on their own raised $2 billion (that’s TWO BILLION US DOLLARS) and sent out volunteers to some of the most dangerous countries to immunise every child. This work is now 99% complete. Rotary provides shelter, food and water whenever and wherever there is a disaster.
Rotary is not in any way a religious, or exclusive organisation. Its members are men and women of all ages and from all walks of life who want to help and do some good in their area, for example by providing facilities for a Women’s Refuge or supporting local Young Carers.
