Charities/Good Causes Supported

The members of the Rotary Club of Blaby Meridian undertake a number of fund raising and social activities within the Blaby District, so as to provide donations and hands on support, for both Local and International deserving causes.

In common with many other Rotary Clubs around the World, The Rotary Club of Blaby Meridian is active in Charity work, or as we prefer to call it 'Service'. 
To that end, we raise money throughout the year, all of which is put into a Registered Charity (no. 1041333  ) which we operate responsibly, not just because of the legal requirements, but because that is how we want to operate.
We are all volunteers and therefore there are no charges for staff or administration.
Occasionally we work with other Rotary Clubs in the area, and where possible source funding and support from other agencies.
