ANNOUNCING OUR FIRST ROTARY STAR
The Rotary Club of Croydon recently launched the Rotary Stars Award, an annual scheme giving the opportunity to recognise and reward primary school age children for acts of good citizenship.
The Club is pleased to announce that our first winner, a pupil at Broadmead Primary School, is 10-year-old Nathan Findlator who received the award in recognition of his great generosity and thoughtfulness during the COVID Pandemic.
Throughout lockdown, Nathan took it upon himself to collect food in order that he could help those less fortunate than himself. He stored it all up until he had a whole crate full and then brought it in and donated it the school’s foodbank.
Nathan received a certificate, a badge, and a copy of The Christmasaurus written by Tom Fletcher.
Due to COVID restrictions, Head Teacher Sarah Hunter (pictured above) presented the certificate and prize to Nathan on behalf of our Club President, Patricia Painting.

Our CENTENARY YEAR begins in six months' time
The Rotary Club of Croydon was founded in 1921
and since that time has been a source of enjoyment to its members
service to the local community.
COVID-19 continues to impact on our Club activities.
Usually, we meet every Tuesday for lunch at the Masonic Halls in Croydon, but during COVID we are only able to meet via Zoom. We are still able to discuss and make decisions on the business of the club, share lively conversations and enjoy our excellent guest speakers.
Some of our social and fundraising events are also held on Zoom, so check our FUTURE MEETINGS page for what's coming up in 2021.
The generosity of our members in donating their lunch monies continues, and since July we have donated £1000 to Broadmead Primary School for their Food Bank and Uniform Bank. In addition we have sourced for the school, five computers, and a quantity of books, games and soft toys.
Fundraising for the Crisis Skylight Centre continues, although on a much smaller scale than normal. 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.
Planning is underway for our Centenary Celebrations in the Club Year 2021-2022.
