Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Croydon Jubilee.
We are one of 7 Rotary Clubs in Croydon. We used to meet on Monday evenings for fellowship and to work together to raise money for great causes, supported by the world wide Rotary organisation. Our motto is Service before self.
In the light of Public Health advice the Club is no longer holding weekly meetings and, like many other organisations, we have had to cancel our fund raising events.
The end of June and the beginning of July is when we hand over from one President to the next, reflect on what we have achieved in the last year and plan for the next. President David's year has been unusual to say the least but he has steered us through a rocky time, including the loss of members, and generated our enthusiasm for giving and meeting in alternative ways. We now have weekly zoom meetings and have used the money we might otherwise have spent on meals at our meetings to create a COVID fund, to be used to help local Covid related projects and initiatives. So far we have distributed £4900.
One of the projects we supported was an initiative started by Corinne Fernandez, the wife of local GP, who together with her colleagues Wendy and Sarah spotted the need of local GPs for scrubs and masks and set about manufacturing them, not only for GPs but for other social care settings. The amount we donated provided 240 sets of scrubs.
We also made donations to organisations providing help to those in urgent need, namely Nightwatch who provide night,y food support in Central Croydon for the homeless and others, to Legacy Youth Zone who provide food parcels in the West Croydon and Thornton Heath areas, and to The Vine and to Good Food Matters in New Addington and to the Shrublands and Rivivify Food Banks.
Our new President, Rajan, is a retired GP and we can expect him to lead the next year with the health of the club and its community at the fore. While active fundraising may 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.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
