We are for Communities
Our Rotary Club is an integral part of our local community.
Whether we are helping the -
· . The Young
· The older members
People with disabilities
And many others
They are all part of our community.
This is why we raise money through our fundraising activities, so that we are able to support local needs and local people.
Our members join Rotary because they want to make a difference and give something back to their community. This may be by giving their time and talents - everyone has a skill to offer.
You will regularly see Rotarians in their yellow tabards as they assist in local events, whether marshalling at the Armed Forces Parade or Remembrance Day Ceremony or collecting for our Christmas Appeal.
We are part of our community providing support as often as we are able and in as many ways as we can.
If this appeals to you, why not come and find out what we Rotarians do.
