Some of these karts got some serious air...



Over the last 12 months we have made major donations to support local charities and organizations in need.

 

We have:

  • Made charitable donations to 46 charities totalling over £40,000 including £6,000 to Hamelin Trust, £6,000 to Aquabox, £6,000 to Little Havens Children's Hospice, £6,000 to Medecins sans Frontieres, £3,650 to Rotary Foundation's End Polio Now, £2,250 to Quilters Junior School, £1,690 to ShelterBox, over £1800 to Mary's Meals, over £800 to Kids Out, £500 to Solving Kids cancer, and £300 or more to each of Chernobyl Children's Child Line, the Lennox Children's cancer Fund and Great Ormond Street Hospital.


  • Supported multiple initiatives in the local community including planning for the “Young Chef” competition, supporting our local junior school RotaKids club and senior school Interact club, holding a “Know Your own Blood Pressure” testing event, and running a highly successful “Kids Out” trip for disabled children.     
  • Helped other local charitable clubs with their events including the Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower’s Summerfest and Christmas Market (at which we had a major presence), the Rotary Club of Basildon Concord’s Mayfest, the Billericay Fun Walk, the Billericay Round Table’s Guy Fawkes Fireworks Display in Lake Meadows park and Billericay Lions Christmas Santa Sleigh collection.   

   

  • Supported International initiatives in promoting Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” campaign through the press, the internet, Facebook and Twitter which generated tweets around the world.

   

  • Held fundraising events of which by far the most significant was our 2017 Soapbox Derby in May 2017, to which over 8,500 people attended and over 40 soapbox teams participated - including teams from local businesses, schools but also from as far away as Lancashire.

       

    • If you are like us, and want to enjoy yourselves, make new friends, listen to interesting speakers, and at the same time, give something back to the community, then you can join us in making this happen.  We’re looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join us and use their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people in their local communities and others around the world.

    Join us and help to make a difference.
