Showcasing Some Great Club Projects
Rotary clubs undertake a wide range of community and humanitarian projects in support of Rotary's main areas of focus. Here, we showcase just a few of them. Please follow the links to learn more about each project.
Did You Know We Build Cars?
The Rotary Clubs of Broadstairs and Sittingbourne Invicta both purchase a Caterham seven car kit each year for local children to build. This provides engineering and teamworking skills, which in one case, has enabled a young man to make a start in his career by becoming Ford's Apprentice of the Year.
Childrens' Hospice Holidays
in 2009, the Rotary Club of Medway launched the Rotary Childrens Hospice Holidays scheme. Each year since that date the Club has funded and led the annual 4 day holiday to Euro Disney Paris, taking 6 families from both Demelza and Ellenor Childrens Hospices in Kent and South East London.
Yellowmen of Kadongdong
The Rotary Club of Senlac have become well known for their Yellowmen of Kadongdong. These are local Rotarians and their friends from the Hastings and Rother area who work in Northern Kenya to build or refurbish clinics and shools. They also help to develop the medical and educational servces in the area.
Helping Young Job Seekers
The Rotary Club of Sidcup have taken the lead in working with Job Centre Plus to help young unemployed people to obtain work. The club has received a Rotary International 'Champions of Change' award, and a Civic Award from the London Borough of Bexley for their work in our community.
Members of the Rotary Club of Sittingbourne Invicta and Maidstone Riverside are also involved in running Interviewing Techniques Workshops and mentoring job seekers.
Trips on the River Medway
Members of the Rotary Clubs of Maidstone Riverside and Sittingbourne Invicta volunteer their time to crew on board Kingfisher; a purpose built boat providing river trips for disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages.
The boat is fitted with a lift to help wheelchair users and others to get on board easily and safely, and operates five days a week from May to September.
Additionally, the Rotary Clubs of Tonbridge, Maidstone Riverside and Sittingbourne Invicta also sponsor river trips for people within their local communities.
