About us

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 are two simple ways to support us in our efforts: 

Or  text: RCBD £10  to  70070 (just replace £10 with £5, £4, £3, £2 or £1 if desired)

Club President 2017 - 2018

Rotarian Lindy Richardson took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2017 from Alan Gibson.


2017-18 President Lindy Rischardson.


Lindy was born in Birkenhead and when she was one year old her father’s job took her family to Tanganyika (now Tanzania). On returning to the UK aged 5 she lived and went to school in Gloucestershire.  A course in Hospitality at the then Oxford College of Technology (now Oxford Brooks University) followed and she worked in the hospitality industry including working as Domestic Bursar at Usk College of Agriculture until she had her two children.
Lindy came to Basingstoke in 1988 and worked as a Coordinating Lecturer at Basingstoke college of Technology teaching a range of hospitality subjects and running The Restaurant at BCoT. 

She joined Basingstoke Deane Rotary in 2013 and has been involved in Youth projects.  She has worked closely with Deane’s sponsored Interact Club at Fort Hill School enabling the group to attend the PeaceJam Youth conference held at Winchester University for the last 3 years and will see them transfer the Club to Cranbourne School when they move there this year.

Lindy has close contacts with The Pink Place Cancer charity since its inception in 2010 and has been a Trustee of the charity.
Lindy is proud to be President of Basingstoke Deane Rotary Club.  ‘Through our fundraising and voluntary service in our local community and internationally we make a difference to people’s lives’
