Community & Vocational is about the work we do supporting our local community; be that distributing funds or spending time to support events and initiatives in our local area.  Examples include:

  • Know Your Blood Pressure (KYBP), where we assist nurses to offer blood pressure checks to members of the public at nearby supermarkets.  Every year, we find several people who need urgent attention but didn't know it.
  • "Kids Out" - along with their specialist teachers and helpers, we take children with special needs to an adventure park such as Drayton Manor and help them to have a great day.
  • We support a variety of local good causes.  For example, at the Becket School we put our business experience to good use in staging mock interviews for the final year pupils, to help prepare them for the job market.  We have also provided financial support so that the school can send pupils on the Rotary Young Leadership Award scheme, which helps them to develop leadership skills.
  • Food donations to Emmanuel House, The Friary Drop-in Centre, the Salvation Army and Clifton Food Banks.
  • Taking disadvantaged school children to the pantomine.
