Today, the city club continues to be at the forefront of voluntary community service helped by funding from its massive Dragon Boats and Best Foot Forward events, as well as the familiar Tree of Remembrance in The Wulfrun Centre at Christmas.
Wolverhampton Rotary has recently spearheaded a ‘Let‘s Talk Rotary and You‘ initiative. The campaign is aimed at encouraging membership from men and women of all ages, where they can enjoy the true friendship engendered by giving something back to their community.
The club recently welcome two new members with Katie Guest, development manager at the Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford, and Sally Woods, a community fundraiser at Compton Care, who received a virtual welcome into Rotary International.
Following the success over the last four years of its Christmas card, Lindum Lincoln Rotary is offering a new cover design for their 2020 cards.
Cards are sold in packs of 10 for £4.50 including post and packaging. All profits go to The Rotary Foundation UK, and last year each purchasing club’s End Polio Now record was credited with £2.35 for each pack of cards bought.
The 2020 cover has been kindly donated by a Lincolnshire artist. The back page of the card explains Rotary’s long-term project to eradicate Polio since 1985, as well as a membership marketing message about Rotary.
Lindum Rotary’s project leader, Simon Kalson, is hoping to grow the customer base and sales yet again in this fifth year. Last year’s Christmas card raised a total of £5,652.
He said: “We have increased the price per pack for the first time since we began the project, to take account of some large supply price increases.
“Printing is 23% more than in 2017, so this was the only way to maintain the brilliant profit per pack, with 100% donated to End Polio Now.”
