May 2020 - COVID-19 Rotarians Help The Local Community

 The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that the members of Cirencester Rotary Club can no longer meet face to face. However thanks to modern technology they have continued to get together via Zoom, social media and telephone conversations.

As part of their response to the crisis they have decided to focus on what could be done to assist local groups who are having to deal with depleted funds during these challenging times.

To get started, the Club members have agreed to donate their regular payment for tea meetings to Cirencester Foodbank. In addition individual Rotarians have been asked, if they wish, to donate directly to the Foodbank some of the money that they would normally spend on the fortnightly  Rotary Dinners.

As the Club cannot organise formal fund raising events they have also decided to use some of their Charitable Reserves to help the Sue Ryder Hospice and Longfield Hospice Care.

Club President Mark Wilton said “ We are part of one of the largest Community Service Organisations in the World and as such we  respond to the difficulties and challenges faced by this pandemic crisis”

A spokeman for the Cirencester Foodbank said “ This is a very generous donation  given the circumstances we find ourselves in.Since lockdown the bank had distributed more meals in one week than in the previous month.”





Cirencester Rotary Club Rotary is a local club for local people who want to make a difference.


Rotary's motto is "service above self" and that is the bond which ties together the members of the Club. Members give their time to a range of fundraising activities enabling Rotary to support charities in the local area and to help people abroad when disaster strikes.


The Cirencester club was founded in 1929 by people seeking to help others and each other; today it has the same ideals for all its members, both men and women. Members meet regularly (most Wednesday evenings) at the Royal Agricultural University.


Cirencester Rotary Club is part of Rotary International which has a worldwide membership of some1.2 million members; there is an international Charity, The Rotary Foundation which is rated as one of the top five not-for-profit organisations in the world and is heavily involved in the End Polio Now international campaign.


Please take the time to look at what we do and, hopefully, what we can do for you!
