There are over 35,000 Rotary Clubs world-wide and more than 1.2 million members. “Rotary” is a very open organisation of men and women who together enjoy putting something back into the Community. Important though that is, we also gain from improving our personal skills and working alongside similar-minded people in our activities.
We have a great track record in raising funds locally where our projects include the Chislehurst Fireworks Display, Summer Fair and the Christmas (Santa) collections. What money is raised is used to promote the endeavours of enterprising young people; help those of all ages who are disadvantaged; and encourage deserving activities.
We also support, using our Rotarian connections, many international projects; regularly responding to disasters caused by severe climatic episodes and financing health and education programmes in less fortunate communities than our own.
Fighting disease worldwide is one of Rotary’s main goals, and our members already support efforts to promote ways to stay healthy, supply training, and provide vital medical equipment. More recently, we’ve been supporting staff in our local health authority hospital where they have been under strain because of the pandemic.
We meet twice a month at the Chislehurst Golf Club. Visitors and potential members are always welcome. I encourage you to explore our website where you will see the details and to gain a fuller insight into our Club.
