'What We Do' Main Pages:

Rotary is supporting Lend With Care


Rotary Club of Buxton want to start a 'Satellite Club' to ensure Rotary continues in Buxton. Here's what it's about


Big Dog Parker's owner, Elizabeth, has loaned him to the Rotary Club of Buxton to help children. Polio is still crippling under-5s so he's fundraising for Rotary's 'End Polio Now' campaign, by visiting Buxton firms, and inviting their staff to help.


Now that the vaccination programme has started we are planning activities (Covid-safe) for later this year. We are helping with traffic control at the Buxton Medical vaccination hub.


Primary school children need to be able to work online but many don't have a computer/tablet. With a District Contingency Fund Grant we have donated £1000 to Buxton Infants and Fairfield Infants for computers.


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (keep safe until the vaccine arrives)
