TO HELP doing good in the community;
the community in which you live and do
Work with us to do more - and have more fun doing it!
Rotary Welcomes YOU
Roborough is an open group with women, men, younger and older working together, learning from each other and having fun. We reach out to other organisations and other Rotary groups to work together to achieve more than we could do on our own. You could also achieve more working with us.
Yes we do help Santa in the community - which enable us to financially support many local organisation, especially with an emphasis on the young. BUT this is more than fundraiser! We hope that for the children we meet it is a positive experience. Thank you to all those who see us and make a donation.
Scotland has St Andrews (and Burns); the Welsh have St David; the Irish have St Patrick; the Cornish their St Piran; each has a special day.
Working with several local organisations Roborough has now established a celebration of St Georges Day. See our diary for more details.
The charity Literacy in Box was set up from, and has the full support of Roborough Rotary. They work with us, other Rotary Clubs and schools to raise funds for and awareness of the needs of children in other countries where education is less easy to obtain than in the UK. Follow the link above to find out more.
But more than this we have a lot of fun doing it. Our meetings provide an insight into ideas that we may not come across in our normal lives and a great opportunity to socialise and discuss ‘network’ in it’s original and best sense.
