Club members please log in for more information.

Members of Rotary Becket’s “Community  and Youth Committee” are extremely active in numerous projects assisting other groups around Northampton including:

Young Carers 

The Club provides drivers to transport (free of charge) young Carers to events organised by Northamptonshire Young Carers.  A young carer is aged between 5yrs-18yrs. They take on the responsibility for helping to look after someone (usually a family member) who has a long-term illness or disability.  In the last 6 months the value of such support has been places at over £4,000 in saved taxi fares or transportation costs

Princes Trust

Calvert Trust

Each year Rotary Becket sponsors a person suffering from a disability to enjoy a week at one of the Calvert Trust Outdoor Centres together with a volunteer supplied by the Club. The week promotes independence in a safe environment and everyone is encouraged to do as much as they can and, frequently, more than they themselves expect.
