Basingstoke Deane Rotary supports many local charities, particularly those that have no fundraising capacity for themselves.
To provide that support we do our own fundraising, and are often
asked about easy ways to donate. So
with no obligation here is a simple way to support us in our efforts:
Club President 2018 - 2019Rotarian Alf McCarthy took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2019 from Julian Ricketts
2019-20 President Alf McCarthy
Alf McCarthy is serving a second term as Club President for Basingstoke Deane Rotary Club having previously been president in 2005/2006. Having joined Rotary in 1993 Alf has seen many changes in the club, most of them for the better, particularly as the club moved from men only to the all inclusive club we are today. The key things that haven’t changed are the relaxed friendly atmosphere, the high level of activity and fun all the members enjoy.
Since recently retiring from a career in telecoms and IT global sales Alf has had more time to focus on Rotary activities and volunteering in other areas of the community. The objective being to make a difference and improve the situation for others less fortunate .
Outside of Rotary Alf enjoys travelling, walking (as long as it is not too far), socialising specially if it involves the odd beer or two. Retirement has also enabled Alf to take up a high impact sport (Bowls). When not involved in any of the above Alf can often be found playing with his Mog (no it’s not a cat).
