Ours is a friendly club of approximately 32 members, formed in February 1924. We meet each Thursday at 12.30 at the Rose and Crown Hotel in Tonbridge. Our major fundraising events of the year are the Tonbridge Half Marathon, staged jointly with Tonbridge Lions Club under the auspices of the THM CIO, the Rotary Charity Golf Day and the Rotary Tonbridge Christmas Festival, which is run on behalf of Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council for the benefit of the local community. 

We also support many local community groups and events, and raise money for local and international charities, including Shelter Box, Water Aid, Anesthaesia Worldwide and The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust. In the past we have donated large sums to Carers First, Compaid, Headway, Hospice in the Weald, Scotts Project, and many other lesser known but essential local charities. Our Community and Vocational Service projects include the Kids Out Theme Park adventure, Senior Citizens' theatre visits, Country drive & tea, mock interviews at local schools and career mentoring in conjunction with Tonbridge Job centre

We contribute to the Rotary/Carers UK  Forum and have been asked along with all Clubs to post the following on our Website:-    Carers UK provides information and guidance to unpaid carers       www.carersuk.org/help-and-advice
