Manning the refreshment tent at the annual Young Carer's Festival in June is great fun and a hugely rewarding experience.
Thousands of young people take part every year in national Rotary Youth Competitions, which in most cases take the form of regional, followed by national heats. The competions are varied and we have, for several years, encouraged our local schools to take part in Rotary Young Writers. Some of our entrants have been very successful.
During the pandemic we delivered food parcels to vulnerable families in our community and provided financial support to local food banks.
Two of our members are Dementia Friends Champions who encourage others to make a positive difference to people with dementia living in their community. One of the things they do is deliver the one hour Alzheimer's Society "Dementia Awareness sessions". At the end of this session participants are invited to become a "Dementia Friend". These sessions have been successfully attended by Rotary and Inner Wheel members, and a further step is to offer these sessions to local organisations and businesses to raise awareness more widely in our community.
