About us


Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of  Croydon Jubilee. 
Like many clubs we are meeting virtually instead of our normal weekly meetings over dinner.  Our "dinner money "  has instead been diverted to a covid fund to support local people in need.   
In the initial lockdown we used our funds to boost PPE for local GPS and their staff.  More recently,  we gave £1000 ( half of which came from a District Grant)  to Nightwatch who provide nightly food support in Central Croydon for the homeless and others,(www.croydonnightwatch.org.uk).  We also wanted to reach out to local Youth and so have supported  the Legacy Youth Zone who,  when they are not providing support  to 8-19 year olds in the borough, provided food parcels in the West Croydon and Thornton Heath areas.


Providing food relief has been vital to the  community.  We do not serve a particular  area so we distributed our donations widely over Croydon: to The Vine; Good Food Matters in New Addington and to Shrublands; and Revivify Food Banks.
 We are also  aware of the costs to mental health of the pandemic and have offered financial support to Croydon MIND and to the Salvation Army.

We are an international organisation and we do not forget our wider global community. Most recently, we contributed to an initiative led by the Purley Club to support a children's hospital in Beirut, which had been damaged by the explosion at the port. 
Our President , Rajan, is a retired GP and health issues have been a key focus of the club this year.  We have benefitted over lockdown by hearing from a number of local clinical speakers about the challenges they face.  

While active fundraising may still be some months away we will continue to look for ways to support our local community through others. We would be delighted to hear from you if you would like to join our endeavours.
