THE ROTARY CLUB OF KING'S LYNN
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OUR MEETINGS At THE STEWART HOUE ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Meetings are however being held on Zoom.
The Rotary theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities.
In our Club we have a very enthusiastic and dedicated team of members who enjoy helping others and having fun along the way.
We aim to offer support for local, national and international good causes. In some cases we help groups and in other cases individuals. In the last Rotary Year (July 2019 to June 2020) the Club gave over £16000 to charitable causes.
In the first six months of the last Rotary year the Club donated over £6600 to individuals and groups. These include West Norfolk Young Carers, the King’s Lynn Night Shelter, the Purfleet Trust, The Norfolk Smoke Alarm Project, The Royal British Legion, Children in Need, Street Child, Shelter Box, Dictionaries4Life (given to primary school children), Prizes for community service and public speaking, a specialist trike for a disabled child and help for a young lady to buy specialist equipment to further her career.
Following the outbreak of Covid-19, donations have included ones to the Purfleet Trust, the Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service, The QEH Charity Fund, the Magpie Centre (Riding for the Disabled), the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, the Pandora Project, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the Samaritans and Nelson’s Journey. 100 Easter eggs were also distributed for staff in local care homes.
Some of our chosen charities for this year are:
Riding for the Disabled, the King's Lynn Night Shelter and the Purfleet Trust
If you would like to become involved within your local Community please feel free to join us at one of our meetings, which are held at the Stuart House Hotel, King's Lynn, every Monday (except Bank Holidays) at 6 pm or e-mail us for further information.
