Our Rotary club is a group of friends who meet each week to enjoy each other's company,usually over a meal, to listen to interesting speakers and to plan and carry out humanitarian projects in our local community and internationally. We also join together in social and fundraising events throughout the year.
We are part of the wordwide Rotary movement, which has 1.4 million members, meeting in 46,000 clubs like ours in most coutries of the world. This means we can work together and take action to create lasting change across the globe as well as in our communities and in ourselves.
We meet most Tuesday evenings at the Winning Post, Twickenham TW2 6LS and visitors are always welcome but we do need to know numbers in advance so please make contact and give us several days' notice if you would like to come along.
Father Christmas will soon be here! He will be coming round the streets in Twickenham and Whitton from 5 December until 21 December, so please look out for him.
Rotary Ukraine Crisis Appeal. Because of the generosity of donors, we as a club have been able to donate £1,000 to the Red Cross and contribute £1,000 to the Rotary District Fund, to support their efforts in Ukraine. This fund has bought and installed seven housing modules in the village of Mosfchun, north-west of Kyiv. It is now purchasing two mine-detecting drones to help speed up mine clearance in agricultural areas. During November club members have donated warm winter clothing to be sent by Rotary to families in Ukraine whose homes have been destroyed.
We support Local, National and International Charities
Here are two of the charities in our borough of Richmond upon Thames that we are actively supporting this year:
Vineyard Community, which supports vulnerable people in Richmond in many ways, from hosting their morning drop-in centre, serving the community in their afternoon café, running the Richmond Food Bank as well as running two charity shops.
SPEAR Richmond, a local charity supporting people experiencing homelessness, helping them to find a place to call home and providing a range of services to improve their health, wellbeing and skills so that they can begin to look more positively towards an independent future.
The local round of the competion was hosted this year by Waldegrave School on 17 October. The covid pandemic had prevented the competition from bring held during the last three years so it was very good for us to be able to sponsor it again this year. For more details see 'What we do".
This is Halima, a grandmother in Mwanza, Tanzania, with her two grandchildren twins. Our club is sponsoring her during her journey to greater independence via the five step Marisha Matters programme run by the charity Forever Angels.
