Trent Bridge Rotary Club was formed in 1991 and is still going strong. We meet regularly on Tuesdays and have an interesting and varied programme of social events and speakers in addition to progressing our charitable and community work as a Rotary club.
Our major fund-raising event in 2015 will be the Great Nottingham Duck Race.
The Great Nottingham Duck Race
This event consists of us selling tickets for a yellow plastic duck during Nottingham's Riverside Festival. Each year we launch over 7,000 ducks into the River Trent from the suspension bridge and watch them race down towards the finish line at the world famous Trent Bridge. For more information please take a look at the event website here.
The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
Members of Trent Bridge Rotary Club once again assisted the Royal British Legionï¿½s Poppy Appeal, manning stands selling poppies at prominent locations around Nottingham.
The added impetus created by 2015's knitted poppies ensured that this year's collections were well up on prior years.
It was a most rewarding and enjoyable experience for our members, who were proud to be able to support such a worthy cause.
The final fund-raising event of 2015 was the Christmas Collection at Morrisons, Gamston, to whom we are grateful for again allowing us raise funds for the benefit of local community and overseas charities.
A total of nearly Â£2500 was raised from the generous shoppers, once again an increase on previous years. Well done, Father Christmases and your Little helpers!
