We support and work in partnership with a wide range of charities and projects at a local and national level. By combining our skills, time and resources, we are able to successfully deliver local and national campaigns which have a positive impact in our communities.
Our experience and skills in community work and volunteering place us in an ideal position to work with organisations such as local businesses, charities, universities, schools, hospitals and environmental groups to support a large variety of good causes. These range from helping at food banks, assisting those affected by flooding, fundraising for local hospices, organising sports tournaments for disabled youngsters and running memory cafés.
When we are not putting youngsters on programmes or forward for Youth Competitions, many clubs are busy organising annual events such as marathons, classic car rallies, sponsored walks, spring fayres, Christmas festivities and looking after the environment in their communities. Others run regular quiz nights, organise concerts, provide lunches for the elderly and help out at music festivals. A great many more take part in our national partnerships such as Children in Need, blood pressure testing days, providing days out for disadvantaged young people and assisting with Trussell Trust foodbank collections.
“The best thing for me is that I have been able to bring a lot of transferable skills to Rotary projects, which is so rewarding.”
