The Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh

Here's an introduction ... scroll further down for our latest news.

Exmouth Raleigh is a small club of about 25 members, both men and women. We normally meet on a Monday evening for a meal, for companionship and to plan future activities.  We have a full programme of charitable and social events that take place throughout the year. We support local, national and international charities with emphasis on those in our area. We also support the global Rotary charity, the Rotary Foundation, which has been so successful for many years with such initiatives as the "End Polio" programme. We are always ready to respond quickly to emergencies and natural disasters anywhere in the world. This response often takes the form of the funding of one or more Shelterboxes to provide much needed help to those directly affected. You will often see us on the streets of Exmouth doing our bit to improve the lives of people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Whilst doing charitable work is both rewarding and commendable, companionship and fun are also important aspects of Rotary, so we usually have a dinner together on club evenings and hold a wide variety of social events for our members and their partners. In brief our members have fun while supporting a huge range of charities and worthwhile causes.

Support to Sand Dams

In addition to our existing commitments, we will be supporting The Water Project's Sand Dams initiative during the coming year.

Raleigh Rotarians at District Conference

Exmouth Raleigh members attended the District Conference in Newquay in March in support of our District Governor, Stephen Lay. The picture below shows our club President, Jan Eamer, and International Chair, Martin Creed, receiving, on behalf of the club, the Cyrill Underhill Shield from DG Stephen for the most club members and the most miles travelled to attend District Conference.

Purple for Polio

In November, Exmouth Rotarians joined forces to support the Rotary campaign for the global eradication of polio (see the End Polio web site) by purchasing and planting thousands of purple crocus bulbs around Exmouth.

Christmas activities:

Last Christmas may be just a memory, but it's worth recalling how our members raised precious funds for worthy causes during the 2016 festive season. As every year we collected donations from the generous Exmouth public at Tesco, we towed Santa's sleigh around the streets of Brixington, we treated local young carers to an excursion on the Exe (with a fantastic contribution by Stuart Line) and, of course, we organised our annual Boxing Day Fun Run on Exmouth seafront.

Here is a picure of the 2016 Santa Cruise with our Town Crier, Roger, accompanying the carers ...
