Welcome to Rotary in Castle Donington!
We are a club of some 22 Rotarians (both women and men) serving the towns and villages surrounding Castle Donington. We meet every Thursday evening at the Donington Manor Hotel. Friends, Rotarians and anyone who is interested in joining or helping Rotary in Castle Donington are welcome to visit us.
During the year have various events where we raise money for local, national and international projects and charities. We do this mainly by our Christmas Santa Sleigh and from collecting donations for parking at the Music in the Park (Thanks Castle Donington Parish Council). All the money goes to local charities and good causes from these events.
We also run very popular film evenings at the Village Hall. It is often sold out weeks before the event as the musical intervals and food prove irresistible.
Our support for Rotary charities remains undiminished.
The Rotary Foundation charity is Rotary International's own charity and funds opportunities all over the world.
AquaBox sends boxes with integral water treatment equipment and boxes with clothes and other equipment to disaster areas where there is a real basic need for good drinking water.
- Polio Plus. in the 1980's, Rotary International committed to ridding the world of Polio. We are still working to that end and the number of cases has fallen from 350,000 cases in 1988 to 13 in 2018. If there is one child with polio, there is still a chance that numbers of cases will increase.
