Funds raised will go to the childrens centre in Uluru in southeast India and provides shelter and a home for over 80 destitute children. Without the centre the children would not achieve and would be vulnerable to a life of crime, deprivation and for girls, child marriage. The children`s centre provides safety and care to the children, who receive education, vocational training and life skills to prepare for the world ahead. Whilst it was set up 20 years ago, the centre has no regular supply of water; so our project will bring safe water throughout the year.

Overcoming challenges of public speaking or technology tournaments, or a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards course helps young people develop tools for success such as self-confidence, planning & team building skills.


Our convivial weekly meetings form a platform for our eclectic speakers. We learn of many varied interests. ‘Special events’ such as Burns night, Christmas celebrations and visits to places of refreshment add to the opportunities for fellowship and fun.
