We participate in a variety of community events each year.
Although we are a small Rotary club, and many of our members juggle their membership with family life and full-time jobs, we like to be actively involved in our community.
Our commitments outside Rotary mean that we mainly get involved in one-off community events, though many of those return to our programme of activities year after year.
We prefer hands on events, where we can all get stuck in and see the fruits of our labours.
Our community events include:
- Running a water station at Mile 6 of the MK Marathon – we’ve supported this event every year since it began, through rain, extreme heat and just on more normal May days. We’ve moved around a bit, but we really like Mile 6 now, as we’re located on the green at Woughton on the Green, a really picturesque spot.
- Helping MK Rotary with Lend a Hand Day, and annual event they run with Age Concern to offer help with small jobs like weeding, window cleaning and bench painting to local elderly people.
- Marshalling for the Midnight Moo, an annual fundraiser for Willen Hospice.
