An introduction to the Rotary Club of Bristol Breakfast
Welcome to our club, we meet for breakfast every Wednesday morning from 7.00 am to 8.30 am at Bakers Hall above the Brasserie Blanc Restaurant at Cabot Circus Bristol. We get the day off to a great start with our mixture of humour, discussion, interesting speakers and, of course, a full English breakfast, and we welcome visits from other Rotarians or those who haven't yet decided to join Rotary.
We are a friendly club with a membership of 45 people, and growing strongly each year. Our members range in age from their twenties up to retirees. This means that the Club's members can enjoy a choice of exciting activities - social, fund-raising & business networking.
(The details of our meeting venue can be found by clicking on the Meeting Information button on the right).
To get a flavour of this club's activities click through to more details via the What we do button above. This will take you to Social which will bring up some images of the last couple of years' fun events while Fundraising will explain how we raise money and where it's spent.
Our new Rotary year started on 1st July, 2015 when we elected a new Club President, Andy Cavanna.
Our Club knows how to take some things seriously and we raise funds throughout the year for International and local projects however we place having fun very near the top of the agenda!
The Bristol Breakfast Charity Golf Day will be held on
Thursday 25th May 2017 at the Bristol and Clifton Golf Club.
It will follow a similar format to last year with a ‘shotgun start’ to try to ensure that everyone starts and finishes within a relatively short timeframe. This will mean that the number of teams will be limited to 22.
Mon Motors (Audi) are supporting us again, offering a car as a prize for anyone scoring a hole in one on one of the par three holes (there will be a modest entry fee for this with competitions on other holes).
Don’t hang about if you’d like to enter a team, numbers are limited! We will be holding a “promises” auction during the dinner again this year. If you are able to offer a “lot” for the auction, please contact Mary Whittington firstname.lastname@example.org or 0117 973 9277.
Dragon Boat Festival 2017
Sunday 18 June 2017
This annual Dragon Boat Festival (DBF) is intended to offer fun while raising funds for charity. The Festival is held at Baltic Wharf in the Bristol City Harbourside between the Cottage Inn and the Bristol Marina.
Each year a headline charity is chosen which receives most of the monies raised. In 2017 the headline charity is "The Southmead Hospital Charity for Prostate Cancer.
The DBF, is a full day’s event with up to 36 teams competing in heats, semi-finals and a grand final. The fund raising is achieved by all crew members obtaining sponsorship. Boats, paddles, buoyancy aids and instruction are provided by the organisers who are professional event organisers.
No previous experience is necessary and it is open to all, subject to a minimum age of 16 and being able to swim 50 yards in light clothing.
Fancy dress makes it more fun so prizes are awarded to the winners of the best fancy dress as well as the winners and those who raise the most sponsorship.
In addition to having great fun and raising money for good causes, the event can provide companies, other groups and organisations with an opportunity for team building.
We meet on Wednesdays at 07:00 for 07:30 Bakers' Hall, Brasserie Blanc, Cabot Circus, Bristol BS1 3DF tel: +44-(0)117-910-2410
