Things you can get involved with...

Here's a glimpse of what we do...

Covid: In response to the Covid crisis we have established a last-resort emergency fund to help families in significant distress. Families must be referred to the fund by a professional 3rd party.  If you would like to donate to this fund please contact us.

We organise fund raising events in our community

  • Spirit of Hitchin Gin Festival
  • Hitchin Wine and Food Festival
  • Hitchin Hard Half Marathon
  • Bric-a-brac, cakes, food sales, bucket shakes

We use these funds to help other charities deliver their services.  For example

  • Hitchin Samaritans
  • Tilehouse Counselling
  • Cancer HairCare
  • Growing People
  • Buzzworks
  • Hitchin Food Partnership
  • Stand By Me

We help out in the community

  • Marshalling
  • Bucket shaking
  • Moving stuff for people who need help
  • Gardening and edible spaces
  • Helping other charities

We enjoy social events, make new friends and have fun together.

We work with Rotary Clubs in other countries on humanitarian projects.

  • Haiti - providing clean water for 2 villages after the earthquake funded by Rotary Foundation

We have our own charity called the Rotary Foundation which funds local and international projects in these action areas: 

  • Preventing disease
  • Providing clean water
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies
  • Saving mothers & children
  • Promoting peace
  • Sustainable environment
There's more to tell but we'll leave that until we meet you at a meeting one day. We like to have fun as well!
