Each year the Rotary Club of Bromley raises funds through a variety of activities and events. These help us support local, national and international good causes. We try and give as much 'hands-on' help that we can locally.
If we donate money abroad we always try to do so through a local Rotary club or through contacts made by individual Rotarians so that none of our money is 'siphoned off' inappropriately.
We use some funds to run local activities for certain sectors of the community. For example we run a summer outing for senior citizens from Bromley.
We also support some local children's projects and organise outings for disadvantaged groups. The children and their teachers tell us that these treats are special and would not normally be within family budgets.
We also allocate funds to local good causes, some national charities and reserve funds for things like international disasters. We scrutinise all applications carefully before allocating any funds.
We aim to raise at least £10,000 each year.
Our main fundraising events over the year are:
- Charity Golf day at Royal Blackheath GC
- Father Christmas Sleigh street collection
- Orpington Marafun (a comminity fundraising event for other local voluntary groups & worthy causes)
- Christmas Tree of Lights
