FRIENDS OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF TEWKESBURY
For men and women who want to help serve the community and share our fellowship
As your local Rotary Club, we welcome this opportunity to share our fellowship and community service with like-minded people who for the time being are unable to offer the time and commitment required of members. A Friend has a formal association with the club, which provides an avenue to participate in club activities.
is no minimum attendance requirement at club meetings, but it is expected that
the Friend will attend up to four meetings / social events per year and
undertake voluntary fundraising or service activities. Meals and costs of club
meetings and social activities will be paid at the same rate as members. The
Rotary Club of Tewkesbury currently meets online on alternate Mondays. Details can be found on the 'Meetings & Events' tab on the menu at the top left of this page.
Rotary was established over 100 years ago to bring together like-minded people who might not normally meet each other. It is the largest world-wide service organisation with clubs in almost every country. It is not a political or religious organisation.
As well as invitations to Club meetings and the opportunity join our fundraising and community events you might be able to help in any of the following ways:
