_________________________________________________________________
In common with many other Rotary Clubs around the World, our Rotary Club 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 Account (Charity Commision no.1057617 ).
All the club members are 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.
