Find out what it means being a Rotarian
Skipton Craven Rotary Club – open for new members.
Despite the restrictions placed upon us during recent months Rotary is determined to carry on albeit with limitations. All our meetings are currently online and any fund raising activities such as our well known Santa Fun Run are now of the virtual kind. Any club is
dependent on a steady flow of new members joining its ranks to ensure its long
term future. We are no
different and are keen to talk to anybody who feels that our motto “Service
above Self” is something they might want to take on board.
ask yourself, do you want to help in doing what we do and make it even better. There are options around membership as to how you might help, becoming a full member is only one.
What we do
Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:
· Promote peace
· Fight disease
· Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
· Support education
· Help when disasters strike
At club level, the primary focus is on fund raising, and if you are local to the Craven area you may be familiar with;
The Santa Fun Run,
The Santa Sleigh that visit most homes in Skipton during December,
Our presence at car boot sales throughout the summer,
Our regular collections at Tesco's & Morrisons,
The work we do with local schools and young people via RYLA, OYT and others.
On an individual level, members have their own areas of focus, so within our club members make significant commitments to
Orphans in Kenya
Youth Technology Tournaments
Our twinning with a club from Dronten, Holland.
Oh yes, we also have fun doing all this.
