Rotary in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire is still ‘alive and kicking’
--- Even though the current lockdown means that all face to face meetings and events cannot be held.
Most of the Clubs in our District are now meeting regularly via Zoom or other similar platforms. These meetings may be feature guest speakers, online activities (such as quizzes) or simply fellowship so that members and visitors can engage and support each other during these unprecedented times. If you would like to join one of these meetings – contact the local Club.
Members are also very active within the community helping with: Shopping, collecting and delivering medicines to those who are shielding or self isolating, producing and distributing PPE(visors, face masks, shields and scrubs), providing a weekly telephone link to the housebound and many more activities.
Clubs are also continuing to raise money to support many of their charities through a variety of inspirational activities. As a District we have also released £22,000 from reserves to support local Hospices and Food Banks.
As we move towards the start of another Rotary Year on July 1st, preparations are different to usual but no less important.
