Information on how you can get involved with MKGU Rotary
Becoming a Rotarian
We welcome new members at MKGU.
If you’d like to find out more about joining us, contact Preston below or just come to a Rotary breakfast, meet us and have a chat.
Every Thursday we meet in the Mulberry Suite at the Open University from 7 am onwards, sit down to breakfast at 7.30am and finish at 8.30am prompt. Even when we have a speaker, we ensure that we finish on the dot to allow everyone to get on with the rest of Thursday.
Benefits of being a Rotarian
There are many benefits of joining Rotary, including
· The opportunity to help others in our community and also help others around the world
· Build friendships with fellow members (and their families) at breakfast meetings, social activities and fund-raising events
· Hear a wide range of interesting speakers at Thursday breakfast meetings
· Join a worldwide charitable organisation (with 1.2 million members) and an open invitation to visit any other Rotary club in the world
We make a monthly charge of £11 (to cover an affiliation fee to Rotary International, a contribution to Rotary Foundation – our international charity and club running costs). On top is a charge of £8 for each breakfast meeting attended (this includes a full English breakfast).
For administrative ease this is collected by a monthly standing order of either £37 or £19 (the amount depends on whether you think you will be able to attend most meetings or more likely once a month). Every six months we adjust your payment to reflect your actual attendance, but no one pays more than £37 per month.
On top of that we each buy a £1 raffle ticket for the weekly raffle – the prize is supplied by the individual on Welcome Duty, which we take in turn.
