Projects & Partnerships

Rotarians do charity in two ways: We raise money for local and international charitable causes, and we roll up our sleeves to help out with projects. An overview of our partners and projects are below. Be sure to look through our blog for in-depth commentaries and stories from our Rotarians about the projects we do and have completed. Don’t forget to check our upcoming events calendar — you might be able to catch a talk by one of the charities or partners listed below!

2019 Trip to Nepal

A few of our more adventurous Rotarians went on a trip to Nepal that was a mixture of sight-seeing, cultural exchange and to help with the Rotary Club Pokhara Fishtail.

Our Club spent £1,900 to help the local area which included vocational education for a student from a disadvantaged background, support in migrant workers returning due to the outbreak of the COVID pandemic, and a pilot project to replace the dirty, polluting wood-burning stoves with hydro / solar powered stoves in many rural Nepalese homes.

Derrick Royall, the Chair of our club’s International & Foundation Committee, describes this exciting trip and our activities in more detail in our blog.

End Polio Now

The most well-known project of Rotary internationally has been the fight to eradicate Polio. Vaccines against this deadly, highly deforming disease costs mere Pence. In all but two countries, Polio is eradicated.

Our club has contributed one thousand Pounds Sterling toward the End Polio Now campaign this year, and in past years we have planted purple Crocus flowers to help raise awareness.

There has been a 99.99% drop in Polio cases since this campaign started. Learn more on the End Polio Now campaign website.
