Supporting our local community

Rotary as an organisation and our club in Portishead are strong supporters of  community projects, both locally in the Portishead area, nationally in the UK and internationally through links with other Rotary clubs and organisations

We support a number of local projects in Portishead including our Memory Cafe, and Young Carers projects as well as those we organise for Youth

Additionally we support many other charities through street collections, events, direct donations and direct support such as stewarding for their events
