One of the main aims of Rotary is to raise money for our local charites. In this last Rotary year we have raised over £12000 which has been donated to such charities as The Space Centre in Preston, Trinity Hospice in Blackpool, Kirkham Juniors FC, Kirkham Scouts, Kirkham Brownies amd Pear Tree SChool.
We raise money through community service, organising events such as those listed to the right of this page. We also help out other organistations in suppoting thiier own events such as the Ribby Hall triathalon, Southport Steam weekend and the local club days in Kirklham and Freckleton.
Excellent Weather on the Sunday of Steam Rallye, definitely brought the crowds in and enabled Kirkham & Fylde Rotary to raise in excess of £6500.00
2. Club Days
Our involvement in Marshalling at last years’ Club Days in Kirkham and Freckleton was praised by the organisers, and definitely gave our Club much needed exposure in the local Community
Once again we were very lucky with the weather, and a good turnout of shooters and members to man the “clays” made it another memorable evening. Thanks to Tom Garlick and his experienced Team of planners, we made over £1100.00.
4. Ollie’s Pizza Night
Another successful “House Party” night, well attended, and with great thanks to Ollie & Helen for their hospitality. Earning monies to “Funds” of over £1100.00
5. Summer BBQ
The 2015 Summer BBQ at SalwickFarm, was not the success we would have hoped. The evening was very good, but it fell on a Bank Holiday, and was only supported by half of the members, and so less than £900.00 was made, with a further £300.00 given to the Scouts for their help in getting the function ready
6. “Old Folks Christmas Party – Dec 2015
In my mind, this Party should now look to be changed – numbers are dwindling, and the format is “old hat”
