Welcome to Bathavon
It is my privilege to be President of Bathavon Rotary Club for 2018/19. Ours is one of two Rotary clubs in Bath - one of over 1,800 clubs in the UK and Ireland and one of over 33,000 in the world with over a million members.
Our club has a membership of over 50 and we welcome both ladies and gentlemen from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions, all who want to give something back by helping both local and international charities. Every year, Bathavon Rotary Club provides much needed help and support for a range of charitable causes as well as enjoying a range of excellent social events.
We are a friendly and open club and enjoy the fellowship and diversity of our members. We normally meet at The Hilton Hotel in Walcot Street in the glorious city of Bath on Thursday evenings at 6.45 for 7.00pm. We welcome guests interested in learning more about Rotary or those who may wish to join us. Just let us know by midday on Tuesday if you would like to attend on the Thursday.
During a typical month, we will host a range of entertaining after dinner speakers from areas such as, charities, business and local government, covering such areas as, the Air Ambulance, Shakespeare and the RNLI. Additionally, we hold a Rotary Business Meeting and usually an activity away from the club, such as a guided tour in the city or a daytime visit to a local garden or the Haynes Motor Museum.
This year most of our community fund raising activity is focused on helping two local charities.
Friends of Bath Young Carers
With so many adult responsibilities, young carers miss out on opportunities that other children have to play and learn. The Friends of Young Carers Charity was formed in 2007 to raise awareness of the issues faced by young carers locally, to provide fundraising support to the Young Carers Service, allowing these special children to enjoy activities others may take for granted.
Dorothy House Hospice
In previous years we have funded a range of exercise equipment. This year we hope to fund much needed additional Doppler equipment for lymphoma patients at the Dorothy House Hospice in Winsley.
Once a year we combine with other local clubs to take over one thousand children with special needs to Longleat Safari and Adventure Park for a day of fun. If you would like to help us by sponsoring this event we would love to hear from you.
Internationally we are helping people in Sri Lanka, and through Rotary International we are supporting efforts to eradicate Polio worldwide.
If you would like to find out more, we would be delighted to hear from you.
President, Bathavon Rotary Club 2018/19
