About us


           NEW CLUB YEAR  : NEW PRESIDENT : SAME CHARITY

COVID-19 continues to impact on our Club activities.

We are holding regular Zoom meetings and have had some interesting speakers in line with our programme, which is linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals UNSDGs. We have also had some fun with a Zoom Quiz, with another taking place in October. In January we shall be holding a Virtual Treasure Hunt.

Despite our main fundraising activities coming to an abrupt halt in March, we were able to send £7,500 to the Crisis Skylight Centre in Croydon. Fundraising for this charity continues and we were delighted to receive a donation from the Croydon Night of Dance on-line event which took place in August. Friend of the Club, Nuala O'Neill is also supporting this cause by undertaking a virtual bicycle ride along the Camino Santiago de Compostela. If you wish to support her efforts, go to her Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/nuala-oneill

Following lockdown, members have been donating the money they would have spent on their weekly lunches. This meant that we were able to send £1500 to the Trussel Trust Foodbank.

The generosity of members continues and since the start of the new Club year in July, monies raised are helping our long-term partner, Broadmead Primary School.

Reports on the above may be found elsewhere on this website.

Support for the Crisis Skylight Centre will continue throughout the year. This is an important resource for homeless people in the community, offering free practical and creative classes and workshops, as well as individually tailored advice, guidance, and coaching sessions. Many of their classes can lead to qualifications and all activities are run by qualified tutors. To learn more visit CRISIS SKYLIGHT.  

Until the club can meet again, regular Zoom meetings have been arranged, some with guest speakers. For full details visit the FUTURE MEETINGS page. 

 

The Rotary Club of Croydon was founded in 1921

and since that time has been a source of enjoyment to its members
and service to the local community.

We currently have over 30 members, both men and women, with a wide mix of social and vocational interests.

We meet every Tuesday for lunch at the Masonic Halls in Croydon, where we enjoy a meal and share lively conversations. We often have guest speakers and regular meetings devoted to discussing the business of the Club and planning our Community and International fundraising activities.This year we plan to hold occasional evening meetings.

In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold social and fundraising events, including theatre trips, and partake in the local Rotary community sporting activities. View the WHAT WE DO section for more information about the activities of the Rotary Club of Croydon.

Planning is underway for our Centenary Celebrations in the Club Year 2021-2022.

Contact our Secretary to arrange a visit to Croydon Rotary Club to meet and hear more about how Rotarians and the Rotary International organisation can "be the inspiration" in their local and international communities.
