International Service

Newbury Rotary sponsors and supports a variety of international and global Rotary initiatives and charities.

Purple pinky for Polio Plus

     International Focus for 2014-15 

Our principal international focus is fundraising for the END POLIO NOW campaign through the Rotary Foundation PolioPlus charity.

We also donate funds to the Rotary Water Survival Box and Shelterbox charities and to the Rotary Shoebox Scheme.

In response to the Philippines disaster in November 2013, Newbury Rotary has made additional donations to MapAction, Shelterbox and Water Survival Boxes.

Further donations have been made to MapAction in 2015 in support of their work in Sierra Leone for the Ebola Crisis.
