Local Community & Rotary Becket
Rotary Becket members are involved in many activities supporting local causes in and around Northampton
Members of Rotary Becket’s “Community and Youth Committee” are extremely active in numerous projects assisting other groups around Northampton including:
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

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.
