The Rotary Club of the City of St Asaph
The Club was founded on 1984 and over the years some £200,000 has been raised and given to local charities and good causes as well as to international projects in third world countries. In addition through friendship and fellowship the club regularly undertakes numerous fundraising activities.
The club enjoys helping others by:-
- Fund raising - Over Â£13,000 was raised last year. In the past there have been such events as the coconut shy, collections for disasters and the wishing well but the main fund raisers are the Summer Fayre and the Christmas float.
- Action in the Community Planting flowers, providing marshals at charity events, giving career talks to students, sponsoring student leadership courses and singing at local events
- Community donations - recently nearly Â£9,000 was raised for the St.Asaph Flood Relief Fund, Â£1000 was given to the local hospice and many many other lesser donations have been made to schools, clubs, organizations etc.
- Rotary International - When 34,000 clubs unite for international projects the effect is very powerful. For example Rotary has taken the lead in nearly eradicating polio across the world. Shelter boxes and relief boxes are sent to 50,000 families per year for help in disaster areas
- Projects abroad - Where the club has direct contacts abroad many projects have been supported such as Â£1000 for bunk beds in an orphanage in Nepal, Â£8,000 for classrooms in Nepal, Â£800 for education of Sri Lankan orphans and Â£500 for materials to build toilets at a Sri Lankan school
- Social events - The club meets every Thursday night for an informal meal followed by a talk, entertainment or to discuss activities. In addition many social activities take place such Burn's Night, BBQs, trips, visits, and social nights
