THIS IS THE TRURO ROTARY CLUB IN TRURO, CORNWALL, ENGLAND

Welcome to the Home page of the Rotary Club of Truro Web Site. I hope your visit will give you a glimpse into the world of Rotary International and an insight into the fun and fellowship that is part of this amazing worldwide organisation which has more than 1.3 million members.

Our club was formed in 1922 and, from its foundation right through to the present day, our focus has been about helping our local community. Today we give a little of our time each month to support projects like the Truro Memory Cafe, the Food Bank, the Truro Disabled Club and the Parkinson's hub, all of which are incredible projects helping local residents deal with their daily challenges. We also help organisations including the Royal British Legion with their annual "Poppy appeal", and provide local young people with innovative programmes and support designed to help in their personal development.

Our Club consists of 28 members, both men and women,who come from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life.

We find that those approaching retirement,or those newly retired, are often attracted to the idea of helping their local community after a busy working life whilst at the same time,enjoying the friendship that Rotary offers.

If you would like to find out more about our club, please contact us .You can email us at rotarytruro@gmail.com  or click the contact link at the bottom of this page. Please ensure that you include your contact details in any message you send.

ROTARY CHRISTMAS COLLECTION FOR 2016

The final quarter of the year started with a flurry of activity, as the Annual Christmas collection was quickly creeping up on us at TRURO ROTARY. Once again  our interepid inventor Rotarian John Simpson rer-entered  his "High-Tec" workshop in Perranaworthal , dusted down his last years creation of the Barrel Organ, and re-polished for this years Annual Event at Sainsburys

Following several new  software updates of a genre of musical melodies, the final version was re-  launched  at Sainsburys Truro, with a fanfare of trumpets to continue its long career as a Fund Raiser. At the same time a posse of Rotarians was let loose with collecting buckets, a sight not to miss, to raise funds for their chosen Local Charities............ and again  what a success it was !

Over a period of 3 weeks we are delghted to say that Truro Rotary raised ove £1,800  and the Barrel Organ was "instrumental "in helping our members collecting generous contributions from the people of Truro, from the Late Night Shopping events and at Sainsburys Supermarket .

" Many thanks, Citizens of Truro" !! Your contributions will go to many local needy causes .



                                                      

 BI-MONTHLY  CLUB MEETING             

Whilst membership is by invitation, this should not stop anyone male or female who feels that they might like to become involved in the Rotary family from indicating an interest, either by speaking to a Rotarian, or by getting in touch with us to find out more.

We meet at Killiow Golf Club, Playing Place, Truro on the SECOND and FOURTH Tuesday of each month with an evening meal,and is open to visitors. Both evenings are 6 for 6.30pm.

We have a relaxed dress code.

Service before self, through the various activities we undertake, is the driving force of our club. Fellowship, friendship and a good sense of fun also feature highly on our agenda."

Rotary is an excellent way of putting something back into the community, at the same time as having a good deal of fun. Many long standing friendships have been formed through Rotary.

Please feel free to visit us

We also had great support from the team from the Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth and the Service personnel in Exeter,Yeovilton and Tidworth

Fantastic weather scenery and team spirit - we all had the time of our lives "

THE FINISH AT HORSEGUARDS PARADE IN LONDON


Golden Anniversary Charity Concert 2013 raised over £2000

On Friday 23rd August Truro Rotary Club hosted a charity concert at Truro Methodist Church featuring the Caldicot Male Voice Choir from South Wales as part of their golden anniversary celebrations. It was fifty years ago that the men from the Llanwern steelworks near Newport got together to form a male voice choir which has grown from strength to strength winning awards and eisteddfods, touring North America and Europe, performing on cruise ships and it was fitting that they were chosen to sing for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The concert was organised to raise money for a number of local Rotary charities principally Truro Memory Cafe and for the James Parkinson Centre for people with Parkinson�s disease. Well over £2000 was raised on the night.
