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:

Club President 2018 - 2019Rotarian Julian Ricketts took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2018 from Lindy Richardson.
2018-19 President Julian Ricketts
Julian Ricketts is serving his second term as Club President for Basingstoke Deane Rotary, having previously been president in 2012/2013. The highlight of Julian's Rotary career was being awarded with a Paul Harris Fellowship in 2018 for service to the community and bringing Rotary into the 21st century with a creative approach to social media.
Julian has 5 pet rabbits and a pond full of fish. He is an experienced archer and one of his best memories is volunteering for the Archery at the 2012 London Olympics. He also makes a great BBQ pit-boss and his slow-roasting is legendary! And his profile would not be complete without mentioning Julian's obsession with all things "Star Wars".
May the force be with Rotary and peace the galaxy over!
