Christmas Gift Appeal
We are working with BayCISS to collect Christmas gifts for children that might go without this year. We will come to your house to collect your gift.
Who are we?
We help people in the local community through to assisting in global projects.
You may have noticed in the news recently about the eradication of wild polio in Africa, well that is our biggest project and we were a major player in that success.
Rotary is particularly good at moving fast in times of disaster and because we have clubs almost everywhere is a natural first responder. Examples would be this year’s bush fires or providing food during the current crisis to those less fortunate.
Do I need special skills?
Individually we are regular people but with over a million Rotarians when we come together we can do some really big things like the End Polio programme.
What sort of people join Rotary?
We have people from all walks of life and from their thirties through to their seventies. People who have:
- Moved into the area and want to make friends
- Retired and want to become a more active part of the community
- Kids have left school and want to become a more active part of the community
- Work at home and want to meet more people
- Chosen to help others
What would I be doing?
Our activities range from selling sausages to raise money, through to going to India to assist in a national immunisation day.
We organise youth activities, help local schools and give money to worthy causes.
During the current crisis we are helping BayCISS provide food to the less fortunate through organising food donations and deliveries.
Do I need to be a business owner or manager?
Absolutely not, just vaguely sensible although with some of our members even that is in doubt.
How often does the club meet?
Normally (remember that) we ‘d meet once a week in the Sandringham Hotel but you don’t have to come to every meeting.
The meeting takes place over dinner and most weeks we will have a speaker.
We are currently meeting every other week via Zoom. You are welcome to join us.
