THE ROTARY CLUB OF KING'S LYNN
The Rotary aim for 2019-20 is Connect with the World.
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 2018 to June 2019) the Club gave nearly £19000 to charitable causes.
In the first six months of the current Rotary year (2019-20) the Club has already 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.
Some of our chosen charities for this year are:
Riding for the Disabled, Nelson's Journey and Young Carer's
