Rotary Satellites are a way that busy people, who find it difficult to attend regular weekly meetings, could become part of Rotary with a lot more flexibility. Our Satellite, although fairly small, with only eight members, has done some amazing work, not only with their own projects but also helping our events and projects and supporting other clubs too. It really is about supporting what you can, with no pressure to join in with everything.
We normally meet once a month at Mr Grundy's on Ashbourne Road in Derby but we are currently meeting online using Zoom. We welcome guests so please do get in touch, their is no obligation to be a member.
Here is an example of what we get up to:
and much more.
In 2018/2019 we raised £2800 for our chosen charities with £100 each going to Annabel's Angels and Dogs For Good and £800 for Rotary Foundation.
This year's chosen charities are Safe & Sound and the Storehouse Project at Ozzy Road Church, due to the Covid-19 pandemic many of our fundraisers had to be postponed. We have therefore decided that we will continue to support these charities for a further year.
