Community and Vocational
Community and Vocational activities seek opportunities whereby Rotarians are actively involved, fostering good relations and developing networking opportunities. We assist the vulnerable, socially marginalised and those with medical needs, in order to enhance the quality of people's lives, across all ages.
We also assist with educational activities with school age pupils, such as hearing readers, help with literacy skills and the gifting of dictionaries. The organising of an outing for physically disabled pupils in connection with "Kids Days Out" fosters confidence building. Fun activities in conjunction with Norfolk Young Carers provides freedom from caring responsibilities, and aiding safety awareness for Year 6 pupils is achieved through Crucial Crew days.
In the past year, Personnel from our chosen charity, Friends In Deed, facilitated contacts in local care homes, in order for Rotarians and residents to plant crocus corms, purchased in aid of Rotary's "End Polio Now" campaign.
In partnership with other local Rotary clubs we organise and run an annual Technology Tournament. Each year we facilitate the opportunity for attendance at the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme.
Donations to Foodbanks, plus collections on behalf of St. Martin's Housing Trust are other examples of the way in which we support local organisations.
