GIVE SOMETHING BACK: If you enjoy helping others, connecting with Rotary gives you the chance to do something really worthwhile.
FUN AND FRIENDSHIP: Rotary membership is a lot of fun. We arrange activities which provide a welcome distraction from busy lives and the opportunity to make new friends who share common values.
BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES: Rotary was founded over 100 years ago as a business networking club and this is still part of Rotary life. Ethical practice is encouraged and, with members drawn from all walks of life, the opportunities to network are endless.
New members are always welcome, and with the unique character of each Rotary Club, the opportunities are endless. Clubs meet for breakfast, lunch, in the evening and even at the weekend. So what are you waiting for? Start your Rotary journey today...
OK Our Kids
Proudly supported by Rotary in the Thames Valley
A new initiative has been launched across Rotary in the Thames Valley in partnership with "OK Our Kids". It is hoped that all primary schoolchildren across Thames Valley see a copy of the book Watch Out, published by OK Our Kids, to help them navigate through the dangers in the world out there which all children face these days.
Without exception, the response from the teachers in the schools so far approached by our Rotary Clubs has been very positive.
Here is a video explaining what OK Our Kids is all about! (Our thanks to Take One TV for the use of the video)
The Rotary Club of Burnham Beeches (RCBB) is the host club for OK Our Kids. The Club has been very successful in obtaining outside funding to help fund the cost of free books. Outside organisations are very supportive and are aware of the challenges that young people are facing in the community today. They want to help!!
