We are a friendly club of 10 members. We have taken a bit of a holiday during this "Covid" time, as most of our few members full within the vulnerable citizens! We have therefore not met although we do have a round-robin communication and newsletters to ensure business continues. We hope this year to try to increase our membership, as the projects we persue are too valuable to our community to lose.
The Santa Run (house to house collection) We raise over £5k which is distributed to local charities who then pass it to the needy within our community
Dictionaries4Life - given to children at the Maple Cross JMI School and Chenies Junior School

We welcome anybody who is looking to help serve local, national or international projects, seeking fun and friendship, whether in employment or retired.
We would also welcome new guests to any of our fortnightly meetings.
We would be pleased to talk to you about Rotary and how you, too, may become a member of this international service organisation.
We yearly support local charities in Rickmansworth, Chorleywood, Croxley Green and nearby communities in SW Hertfordshire.
The Club is part of the worldwide family of Rotary and therefore also contributes to Rotary supported charities across the globe. This is done through our links with Rotary Clubs abroad so that we can be sure the money raised is properly directed to those in greatest need.
In the course of this year we have collected over £7,000 to devote to charitable projects. This has been done by collections outside local stores, collections before Christmas by touring in our area with Santa Claus and Rudolf and by running events such as Quiz nights.
Examples of charities supported are:
Mill End Community Trust - Rickmansworth Food Bank (yearly)
Watford & Three Rivers Refugee Partnership (Yearly)
Recently collected to purchase a Defibrillator for Mill End Community Centre
Michael Sobell Hospice
Mount Vernon Cancer Centre
