About us

Benfleet Rotary Club

District 1240

Fancy a cup of tea?


Benfleet Rotary club is holding an afternoon tea party, for anyone who comes along, in aid of Purple for Polio (http://www.rotarygbi.org/what-we-do/purple4polio/)   at the Castle Point Council Offices, where we planted several hundred crocus a few years ago and which should be in full bloom for this event. 


It will be held  between 4pm and 5.30pm on 8th March.  Steve Cole, Castle Point Mayor is attending  to present cheques to the charities supported by last year"™s Rotary President, Beverly Egan.  We will be providing tea, scones and jam to everyone attending and will be asking for donation toward Rotary's effort to eradicate polio from the world.


We also hope to have Boris attending "“ no don"™t get too excited, he is  our Rotary bear http://www.rotarygbi.org/what-we-do/purple4polio/rotary-polio-bear/ who has been almost round the wold with various members in our club and we hope to be able to get him to perform some sort of charity "˜stunt"™.
