Service defines Rotary's character; whether local or international, it promotes Rotary's appeal and visibility in the community, and is the reason Rotary continues to grow.
Rotarians are passionate about the community they work and live in.
At Newbury Rotary Club, we focus on helping national and local charities and community groups and projects. We may provide financial support, hands-on practical assistance and sometimes, simply advice or putting the right people in touch with each other.
Our main focus will be providing support and activities for West Berkshire Young Carers as well as support for:
Every year Newbury Rotary hires a barge from The Bruce Trust and organises day trips for local community groups.
