For me Rotary is a way of enjoying myself whilst doing some good. The fun and fellowship are excellent and the various charitable and service activities provide structure and transcend ages and genders. My time can be limited but our club is happy for each person to help in ways that allow them to carry on with work and family stuff; there is no set time commitment. Rotary is my way of giving something back for my good fortune.
I have enjoyed many family activities with Rotary too. We enjoy walking and having some weekends away so some of the President's Challenges like Walking Hadrians Wall and climbing Snowdon have been a great.
I do what I can when I can so no matter how limited your time is you will have something to offer. Please get in touch if you would like some more information about getting involved.
