Our Comunity Officer, Loraine Davis, is determined to
strengthen the existing links that the Rotary Club of Croydon has
with other organisations in and around the Croydon area.
Loraine is keen to establish new links with organisations which, like the Rotary Club of Croydon, are committed to serving both the local community and the wider world.
She is convinced that the Rotary Club of Croydon with its long history of local service and its strong international perspective should actively assist in building networks of like-minded organisations and thereby create successful community and international partnerships.
In 2017, we entered into a long term partnership with both Broadmead Primary School and the Croydon Night of Dance.
During the year 2018-2019, we organised the planting of trees at Broadmead School and also donated 60 'Dictionaries 4 Life'.
In the same year we supported the Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association's Befriending Service, and during this 2019-2020 year we are supporting the Crisis Skylight Centre in Croydon. [See under Presidents Charities.]
During the 2020-2021 Club year, we shall be continuing our support for the Crisis Skylight Centre, and also offering support to Broadmead Primary School.
