Staines Rotary spent the last year helping rebuild our community following the pandemic. Whether this was via events such as the Santa Fun Run or our Health Expo Day when we bought together professionals to offer health advice to the public or raising monies for local charities.
However, we are much more than that. In Staines we have supported our most precious asset, our youth. We place their involvement at the heart of all our projects. We funded the relaunch of Staines Youth Club (Leacroft), handed out illustrated dictionaries to all year 5 children in local schools and sent five young people to our nationally recognised Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA).
Internationally we helped fund a Global Scholar to come to Royal Holloway for a Post Graduate Masters Degree, sent books gathered by the community to equip Ghanaian libraries and welcomed Rotarians from our twin town Melun. Support of Afghan and Ukrainian refugees has been a focus in the last year allowing us to utilise our unique contacts.
Raising health awareness, we have planted 4,000 Crocus to raise awareness of polio and handed out roses with inspiring messages for World Mental Health Day as well as taking a group weekly to the local Penrose club.
Our partnerships are broad, including businesses like BUPA, McDonalds, Oasis, McDonalds, Thameside Brewery and also Spelthorne Borough Council and Visit Staines.
None of this is possible alone and we can only achieve so much with our community supporting us. We need both your ideas and most importantly you to ensure we can continue giving.
Come and find out more about us and how we can unleash your hidden powers to make this a thriving and caring community.
