to raise money
The fundraising events that help support Club projects and local charities
Alongside voluntary service in the community, fundraising events are an integral part of our Club’s activities.
These events support our international projects (see Around the world), and in our own community they support many local charities and enable us to run our Memory Café.
Our main yearly events are:
- Swimarathon at Parkland Leisure Centre in February / March. Sponsored teams of swimmers raise money for local charities and also one of our international projects.
- Christmas collections outside ASDA and Sainsbury’s specifically for local children’s charities.
- Concert at Leicester Grammar School which showcases the musical talents of their pupils. This is run jointly with the Rotary Club of Blaby. Monies raised from this go to the charity chosen by the current Club President.
- Race Night run jointly with the Rotary Club of Kibworth & Fleckney to support one of our international projects.
There are also many other events during the course of the year which help support all our activities
