We are men and women of all ages, sharing their time, energy and skills to help charities and good causes in the communities in which they live. Our club enjoys excellent fellowship, participates in a wide variety of fund-raising projects, supports civic and community events, and holds many interesting and fun social activities.

We normally  meet on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm,  at St Augustine's, Westgate-on-Sea

During lockdown we met each week on Zoom but now we've resumed normal meetings.

Give Dave Alker a call on 01843 845783 to arrange to join us.

CLICK HERE TO ENJOY OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY PICS

What a wonderful evening of celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of the Charter of the Rotary Club of Westgate & Birchington! A large number of Rotarians and guests enjoyed an outstanding dinner at St Augustine's followed by a spectacular series of dance displays performed by students and staff at the Page Mason School of Dance, including a very special dance centred on the President, Chris Hedges! Two fantastic birthday cakes (made by Honey Cake Bakers of Birchington) were commissioned by Past President Mike Benton to mark the occasion. Messages of congratulation were brought from local Rotary and Inner Wheel Clubs and from District Governor-Elect, David Lister. The evening was rounded of by dancing to the music of Nick Bosworth.

WE RECYCLED FOR MOBILE CANCER CARE!

The Rotary Club of Westgate & Birchington is supporting “Hope For Tomorrow”, which provides mobile cancer care and chemotherapy units, and we collected unwanted clothes, shoes, handbags, towels and bedding to be recycled. See their website for further information www.hopefortomorrow.org.uk

Over 200 black sacks were collected recently by “Hope For Tomorrow” amounting to well over a tonne in weight which translated into a donation of about £350 which is more than enough to run the Mobile Cancer Care unit, “Caron” (in memory of Caron Keating), for a full day.
Our huge thanks to everyone who donated their textiles!
