40th Birthday Fundraisers

Ashtead Rotary Club turns 40 in 2021! We want to support ten people who would like to fundraise for their 40th birthdays with donations of £100 each. Let's celebrate together!

Ashtead Rotary turns 40!

Ashtead Rotary Club (ARC) was founded in February 1981. To celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are looking for people living or working in Ashtead who also turn 40 in 2021 to share the special occasion with! We have ten donations of £100 each to be given away to support online, 40th birthday charity fundraisers.

How it works:

  1. Choose a charity that you would like to fundraise for. Ideally the charity's work would fall into one of Rotary's areas of focus (see www.rotary.org/en/our-causes).
  2. Complete the attached form in full and email it with at least one good quality image to ashteadrotary@gmail.com by Wednesday 23rd December 2020.
  3. Ten people will be chosen at random to take part in the Ashtead Rotary 40th Birthday Fundraiser.
  4. If chosen, ARC will set up a JustGiving fundraiser webpage using the information you provide. The webpage will be live for four weeks, around the date of your birthday.
  5. You email and/or share on social media the web link to your friends, family, colleagues etc. asking them to help you mark your birthday by donating to your chosen cause.
  6. Once the fundraiser has finished, ARC will send the funds raised through JustGiving plus an extra £100 from ARC to your chosen charity.
  7. The charity that receives the highest donations from one of these birthday fundraisers will receive a bonus donation from ARC at the end of 2021.
