BING REWARDS !

In order to help generate some additional Trust Funding we have signed up with Bing Rewards. Bing Rewards allocate points for all uses of their Search Engine with additional ones for playing games; doing quizzes etc through the same year. There is no obligation to spend any money. Hence if you are buying something via Smile Amazon or Tesco/Waitrose etc go to the site via Bing. Do not worry that it will be a small amount - the idea is to promote it and get as many users allocating The Rotary Club of Ripley and Send as their preferred Charity. to do this you will need to go to https://www.bing.com/give/dashboard in the first instance and change the Preferred Charity to THE ROTARY CLUB OF RIPLEY AND SEND TRUST FUND  Please do not forget to also advise your friends and neighbours. and Remember that - Out of acorns grow large oak trees.

 

 

- AMAZON SMILE -

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic raising funds has been very challenging
So our cub has signed up to Amazon Smile as a registered charity. 
Each purchase made through AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.co.uk) results in a donation to us.
The purchaser still pays the same Amazon prices.

 

Please support our club by registering with Amazon smile

Select our club (Rotary club of Ripley and Send) as the charity you wish to support.

Many thanks for all your support !

OUR HISTORY:

 

 

 

 

President Gill Bar -Colbeck with Mayor of GuildfordThe Rotary Club of Ripley and Send was founded in 1975 by a small group of businessmen keen on supporting both the local and International Community, yet at the same time enjoying each other's companionship. Since then we have raised over £400000 for various causes and provide on going help to both the young and the elderly both Internationally and within the Local Community.

We are twinned with one European Rotary Club, The Confolens-Charante Limousine Club in South West France with regular exchanges taking place on a bi annual basis.

In 2019, together with the Confolens club we raised funds to create a Commemorative Avenue of Trees on the Send Recreational ground which was formally opened on Monday 23rd September 2019 by the Mayor of Guildford along with representatives from both Rotary clubs, members from the Send Parish Council and pupils from the Send Primary School.

 

 

One of our popular charity fund raisers is the Santa Collections that we perform around the houses of Ripley, Send and Clandon. This is a great treat for all the local children to come out and meet Santa and for the villagers to donate towards various local charities.

 

 

In September 2018 we were honoured to be one of only five Clubs in District Rotary South to be awarded the Rotary International's Presidential Citation for making differences to the lives of People all around the World (Michael Ramcharan Past President 2015-2018).

 

This was the third time that the Club had been honoured this way - the first being in 2008  as a result  of the efforts of past Rotarians Mike Grey and Ernie Stubbs for the production of the Club Magazine.


 

WHO Africa Region- POLIO FREE !!!!

Today, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Africa region, has officially been certified free from wild poliovirus [LINK], signifying a major milestone in the battle to eradicate the disease worldwide.  This progress is the result of a decades-long effort across the 47 countries which make up the WHO’s African region and now means that five of the six WHO regions, which represent 90% of the world’s population, will be free of wild polio.  Rotary members have played an invaluable role in the effort to rid the African region of wild polio.  By raising funds for polio eradication, advocating with world governments and national and local leaders, and raising awareness, Rotarians have contributed nearly US $890 million to conquer polio in the region.

 

 

 

 Woking and Sam Beare Hospices 

They are relocating to Goldsworth Park and also enlarging their catchment area to include the Villages of Ripley and Send.

This Joint Effort by nine Clubs in NW Surrey working together with Clubs in France, Scotland and Trinidad (West Indies), Local Authorities and Major Donors,  with the help of Rotary's own Charity in the US -The Rotary Foundation -  managed to raise a total sum of between £105/110,000 

 

ADDITIONAL FUNDS HOWEVER ARE STILL REQUIRED!!
