COMMUNITY SERVICES

We are keen to support local community based charities in whatever way we can.

Dust extractor provided for the workshop of the Knighton Community Support Group

The Rotary Club of Knighton and District is very keen to support local charities and projects in both Knighton, Presteigne and all areas in between. 

The majority of our fund raising activities are in support of such  projects and charities and we aim to get support from the local people  for such events.

We also hope to increase awareness of what our Rotary Club aims to do for the community. 

We hope, in addition, that the more we do, the more people may be interested in being part of the Club and want to give something to those in need.
